If you’re planning a social gathering, like a party, a bonfire, or a barbecue this summer, it’s important that your guests don’t drink and drive.

That’s the message from the Bancroft OPP. Constable Philippe Regamey says there are steps you can take to make sure all your guests are safe if they’ve been drinking.

The OPP has released information showing that impaired driving was a factor in 45 deaths on Ontario’s roads last year.
