The RCMP is warning driver’s this holiday season: if you drink, don’t drive. Instead, they are urging those who imbibe to plan a different way home, or just spend the night.
“Our police officers will be working hard to keep impaired drivers off our roads this December,” stated Fort St. John RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.
“It’s not just a matter of losing your license, having to pay hefty fines or facing a criminal charge, it’s about saving lives.”
There are options if you want to make it home in one piece and make sure you aren’t a danger to others by driving impaired. Take a taxi, have a sober friend drive, or be the designated driver yourself.
“Don’t drink and drive this holiday season,” read the release. “Nothing sobers you up quicker than a trip to jail.”
