Those whose Christmas festivities include a visit to Canada will be able to cross the border without paying a toll.
The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority announced that, in a continuation of its usual practice, no tolls will be charged on the Peace Bridge on Christmas Day, starting and ending at midnight. The normal auto toll is $3.75 in U.S. funds or $5 in Canadian funds, and is collected as vehicles enter Canada.
"Not charging tolls on Christmas Day is a nice way to conclude the year and say thank you to our employees and customers," authority chairman Ken Manning said.
He added that drivers will be able to see a holiday lighting display on the bridge.
