TIMMINS POLICE ISSUE PUBLIC SAFETY ADVISORY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH arrivealive.org

With the prospect of legalization of cannibis marijuana becoming the new reality in the months to come, the Timmins Police Service, in partnership with arrivealive.org

are reminding the driving public that the responsibilities to drive sober and alert remain intact.

Despite decriminalization, impaired driving laws remain unaltered and no legal obligations have been relaxed in any way.

The Timmins Police is urging young drivers and the parents of teen drivers to view information at arrivealive.org to better acquaint themselves with the realities

attached to impaired driving.

Impaired driving, by means of alcohol or marijuana, remains a threat to public safety.

it is hoped that videos, such as the one below,  provided by Arrive Alive bring this issue into sharp focus for novice drivers and any other drivers who indulge in the use of recreational inhalants.
