RCMP step up visibility on roadways

Counter Attack roadblocks

The Sunshine Coast RCMP have been increasing visibility on the roadways through patrols and Counter Attack roadblocks in hopes of making the roadways safe over the holiday season.

Since the beginning of December, Sunshine Coast RCMP has conducted 11 Counter Attack roadblocks, and as a result, accumulated more than 130 stats, which include a combination of written warnings and violation tickets, as well as four 90-day immediate roadside prohibitions, four, three-day immediate roadside prohibitions, four, 24-hour roadside prohibitions (for drugs), four, 30-day vehicle impoundments and two, three-day vehicle impoundments.

“In addition to the patrols on the roadways, the RCMP continue to show visibility in liquor establishments on the Coast, having conducted 17 liquor premise checks, in hopes that increased visibility will make patrons think twice before drinking and driving,” said detachment media spokesperson Cpl. Steve Chubey. “Sunshine Coast RCMP would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and to remind motorists to plan their evenings, designate a sober driver, use public transit or call a taxi. If you choose to walk to your destination, wear bright or reflective clothing and cross at designated crosswalks or intersections.”
