Tonight promises to be a historic evening for the Toronto Raptors and their fans. Timmins is certainly caught up in the excitement leading up to game 5 of the NBA Championship. While the Timmins Police Service is hopeful that the Raptors have a great game and wrap up the season, the adult fans who will be out celebrating have a responsibility to plan ahead. if you are going out to take in the game in a licensed premise or any other venue that will be serving alcoholic beverages, your obligation to plan for a safe ride home starts now. Enlist the help of a designated driver, pre-arrange a taxicab, take in the game within walking distance home or simply do what is necessary to enjoy and celebrate without placing your safety at risk. The Timmins Police Service will be patrolling area roadways to verify sobriety. Stick to the game plan and you won’t become a sad reminder or a losing statistic.
Go Raptors Go !!
