The OPP is reminding drivers to slow down and stay alert this upcoming long weekend.  Drivers should monitor their speed, and pay close attention to fence lines.  Police say wildlife pose a greater threat on northern roads as nearly 50 per cent of all collisions in the north this past year.  Police are advising drivers to slow down and prepare to stop if you see an animal on the road.
