While the holiday may not officially be until Tuesday, seems many people are hitting the road a little early and getting out of town and the OPP will be watching the roads closely this weekend.
While a new report released this week show that speeding has become a bigger issue than distracted or impaired driving, traffic is sure to be heavy allowing for a different kind of driver - the aggressive driver.
"Aggressive driving is not just speeding," explained Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. "It's also following to close, unsafe lane changes, failure to yield, all those behaviours that put drivers and other road users at risk."
Police warn that impaired driving is also a major issue over Canada Day and say that it's more of a problem this weekend than around Christmas.
