Holiday season impaired driving check

Members of the community are encouraged to have a fun and safe holiday season but to plan ahead. Don't drink and drive.

On Dec. 6 and 7 the Burns Lake RCMP in partnership with Prince George Integrated Road Safety Unit and Smithers Traffic Services conducted various check and traffic stops as part of the RCMP Impaired Driving Priority project to make Burns Lake a safer community. Over 700 vehicles and drivers were checked resulting in four roadside suspensions for impaired driving and 10 charges for other alcohol and drug related offences.

A total of 39 violation tickets were issued for other violations under the Motor Vehicle Act.

The Burns Lake RCMP will continue to conduct impaired driving check and traffic stops throughout the holiday season to prevent impaired driving.

Members of the community are encouraged to have a fun and safe holiday season but to plan ahead. Don’t drink and drive.
