Don't Drink and Drive

Happy Canada Day!

With Canada Day as the launch of the summer season, now is a good time to remind everyone that police will be out in full force looking for impaired drivers at roadchecks across the province this summer.

If you're going to drink, make the smart choice and plan your way home before you go out:

-Take transit
-Choose a designated driver.
-Refuse to ride with drivers who may be impaired. Ask to be let out of the car if necessary.
-Set an example: your smart driving decisions can have a significant influence on others.
-Take a stand and don't let people drive if they have been drinking alcohol.
-If you see an impaired driver, call 911 and report it to your local police.
-Talk about the issue with your family and friends.
