The Victoria Day long weekend is known as the unofficial start to summer, and London Police will be looking out for those who celebrate with alcohol and then decide to drive.
As part of Canada Road Safety Week, the London Police Service will participate in a national enforcement day Saturday to address impaired driving related offences.
While impaired driving remains one of the big four causes of vehicle collisions in Ontario, impaired driving in London is down this month.
Police say they have arrested and charged 72 people with impaired driving related offences compared to 102 during the same time period last year.
In a release, Sgt. Amanda Pfeffer with the Traffic Management Unit says that an impaired driving conviction could cost you $28,000 thanks to legal costs, fines, licencing fees and insurance increases.
