RCMP in the region are reminding drivers to be patient this weekend.

There will be a lot of extra traffic on regional roads with MusicFest taking place in the Comox Valley.

Constable Rob Gardner says it’s important to be extra patient when there’s more traffic on the roads. Gardner advises drivers to be calm and take their time getting to their destination.

He notes that with all of the events taking place in the Valley this weekend, and in the summer, there will be more cars and pedestrians out on the roads.

Gardner notes it’s also important to make sure you’re following the rules of the road, including making sure you don’t block intersections.
