Planning on getting behind the wheel this long Easter weekend, heading out to visit friends or family?

Well you definitely won’t be the only one doing that, so best to buckle up, stay off the cell phone, and drive within the speed limit–that from RCMP Constable Don Sinclair.

Constable Sinclair says RCMP on Vancouver Island will be out in full force throughout the long weekend watching for drivers who fail to follow the rules of the road.

Lock up your home and valuables in properly securing your home, before hitting the road for this Easter long weekend!
