Ontario Provincial Police have laid 159 impaired-driving charges so far this long weekend as drivers have hit the road for their long-weekend getaways.

In addition to the impaired-driving charges, police have pulled 25 cars off the road for stunt-driving, and laid another 16 dangerous driving charges, Sgt. Kerry Schmidt told CBC News.

Schmidt said he expects those numbers to rise as cottagers return to the roadways for what will likely be a long drive home.

“Don’t be in a rush,” he advised Monday morning.

“Take your time and realize that it will take longer to get home and just don’t take chances.”
