Local police and ICBC have launched the CounterAttack for impaired drivers campaign that sees frontline officers at several roadside checks throughout the community.
Multiple officers using a variety of tools to help detect and apprehend impaired drivers, including approved screening devices, physical coordination testing and assistance of specific officers trained as drug recognition experts.
Although the official CounterAttack launched Saturday night officers have already been enforcing the law in the community. There are more officers on the roads watching for impaired drivers and this will continue until the new year.
As an alternative for a safe ride home, Operation Red Nose is offering rides for you and your vehicle throughout the holiday season. This is the 20th year Operation Red Nose is volunteering to help the community with its by-donation service, which is presented by the Rotary Club of Prince George-Nechako.
