Northwest BC RCMP officers step up enforcement

Police to target impaired drivers in July campaign

Re: Summer impaired Driving Counter Attack Campaign: July 1-31, 2012.


Police are advising of an upcoming campaign that is being geared towards drinking and driving. This month long, province wide campaign is set to start July 1, 2012.

It is recognized that drinking and driving is not only happening around holidays and weekends and given the better weather during summer months, the possibility of an increase of impaired drivers may occur within our communities and on our highways.

With the re-introduction to the amended Immediate Roadside Prohibition on June 15, 2012, Police will be further focusing their efforts towards road safety through enforcement, targeting impaired drivers.

Enforcement against impaired driving is one of the strategic priorities to reducing the number of alcohol/drug related crashes that cause serious injuries and/or fatalities.

Other priorities include targeting aggressive drivers and non compliance of seatbelt use.

Police request the motorists assistance to ensure they have a safe ride home if they or others have had too much to drink. Plan ahead and don’t put yourself or others at risk on our roadways.
