Alcohol-impaired driving is one of the leading causes of death on Ontario’s roads. Just one drink can reduce your ability to react to things that happen suddenly. The effects of alcohol also include blurred or double vision, impaired attention and slowed reflexes. Let’s make this a safe and memorable Father’s Day weekend for all the right reasons. Drive sober.
