Windsor police have issued a word of caution to those people who get caught up in the excitement of the World Cup.

Police spokesperson, Sgt. Matthew D'Asti, says they're concerned some are putting their safety at risk.

"There have been times where we have pick-up trucks or vehicles that are loading people in the back and driving up and down streets, waving flags. This may look like a great thing to do and be involved in, but ultimately our concern is about safety," D'Asti said. "We don't want to see somebody falling off a vehicles, banging their heads or cracking their skull."

Police say people need to be more aware of traffic laws.
