Chilliwack – RCMP marked December’s Christmas Season CounterAttack campaign with police conducting their first enhanced impaired driving intervention action over the weekend.
Located at Yale Road near the Trans-Canada Highway over-pass on the evening of December 7, Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Service and front line policing officers removed six impaired drivers from the roadway.
Officers issued four Immediate Roadside Prohibitions – which may carry a driving prohibition ranging from 3 to 90 days- and two twenty-four hour driving prohibitions to impaired drivers during the operation.
“We urge anyone indulging in the consumption of alcohol or cannabis to be responsible and do not drive,” says Corporal Mike Pfeifer of the Chilliwack RCMP. “Plan a safe means of getting home.”
