Other reminders to help everyone enjoy game days include:
- Don’t choose to drink and drive. If you drink, be smart and take the bus, call a cab, use a designated driver;
- Remove all valuables from your vehicle and lock the doors. There will be additional police patrols around the stadium during games to deter theft-from-auto and theft-of-auto, but it’s always better to remove or reduce the opportunity for crime;
- Consider using FREE public transit or car-pooling to make your travel plans easier. Regina Transit has provided a FREE Mosaic Stadium Shuttle transit route which can be found at https://www.regina.ca/transportation-roads-parking/transit/rider-transit-mosaic-stadium-shuttle/;
- Respect the neighbourhood. Mosaic Stadium is in a residential neighbourhood, and visitors should always ensure they park vehicles legally, refrain from littering, smoke in designated areas, and respect the property of others;
- Set your GPS and finish texting your friends before you drive. Don’t drive while using your cell.
Enjoy Game Day and be safe! Go Riders!
