Counterattack road checks in full swing

Sunshine Coast RCMP

Expect to see the Sunshine Coast RCMP out in force over this holiday season, ensuring the roads are safe.

Local RCMP are urging drivers to plan ahead for a safe ride home — arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi, use transit or call a sober friend for a ride.

During last years holiday season, Sunshine Coast RCMP removed 24 impaired drivers from the roadway.

Impaired drivers face immediate penalties, which can include vehicle impoundment, licence suspension and fines and fees ranging from $600 to $4,000. It's important to know that refusing to blow results in the same consequences as impaired driving, including having the interlock device installed on the vehicle, and taking the expensive Responsible Driver Program.

Sunshine Coast RCMP encourage the public to call 9-1-1 to report suspected impaired drivers. Provide police dispatchers with the licence plate, vehicle description and the reason you suspect the driver is impaired.
