LONDON, Ont. — Police in London, Ont., are encouraging drivers to lie.
The force is telling drivers rushing to work that instead of speeding or driving aggressively, they should just lie to their boss.
They suggest that if motorists are running behind, they should obey the rules of the road and keep a spare flat tire in the trunk as an instant excuse for being late.
Sgt. Tom O’Brien says it’s a tongue-in-cheek way to draw attention to an issue that’s very important — especially as the school year is set to start.
He says to get people to pay attention to an old message sometimes new techniques are needed.
So O’Brien says: slow down, but keep an arm cast in the car in case you need to fake a hospital visit.
