DETROIT (WWJ) – The long holiday weekend allows many of us to take a trip that involves a border crossing. WWJ’s Gary Lundy has some holiday travel tips that may save you time and trouble when on the road.

Summer has officially arrived and that means cross-border traffic will be busier than it was a few months ago.

Before you begin your trip, make sure you’ve got the necessary documents to prove your citizenship: a passport, enhanced license, certified birth certificate … among others, if your travel plans include a trip across the river to Windsor, or up to Toronto or Niagara Falls.

Other travelers may have the same plans, too, which means longer waits at the border crossings of Detroit and Port Huron.

Know the law when making a purchase that you transport from one country to the other.

For more information you can contact the Border Information Service at (204) 983-3500 or (506) 636-5064.
