Niagara Gazette — Some timely advice for motorists heading across the border. Whether it's to cottage country in Ontario or shopping malls on this side. A few tips to expedite your travel:

• Before you start, call 1-800-715-6722 for updated reports on wait times to cross Rainbow, Whirlpool and Lewiston-Queenston bridges. Also, you can visit on your web-enabled device or follow @NiagaraBridges on Twitter.

• If traveling with children under 16 years of age and not part of your immediate family, you'll need to produce a parental note of permission regarding cross-border travel. The note should include each child's parental contact information and telephone numbers.

• Be sure to declare all fruits, vegetables, plant and plant products, animals, birds, meat, as well as items acquired for personal use. 

• Your trunk should be empty except for essential luggage or vacation supplies. Additional belongings in the car will only add time to your crossing.

• Turn off radios and cell phones when approaching Customs inspection booths and speaking with officers. Also, remove sunglasses and make contact with the Customs officers.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
