Penticton RCMP issued 28 immediate roadside prohibitions of all types to impaired drivers as they targeted those under the influence of drugs and alcohol throughout December.
Community Safety and Enforcement Team members also issued 16 roadside prohibitions and five driving prohibitions, as roadblocks were set up and roving patrols conducted.
“Driving while impaired is one of the leading causes of fatal car crashes in BC. There is no excuse to drink, or use drugs, while driving. If you plan to drink, leave your car at home,” said Const. James Grandy in a release.
