Nine impaired drivers were stopped and numerous other violations were cited when Red Deer City RCMP conducted check stops at various locations throughout Red Deer on the evening of Friday November 18.
The check stops yielded nine impaired drivers, two 24-hour suspensions, ten vehicles towed, 20 violation notices and one stolen license plate was recovered.
The RCMP warn drivers that they will be conducting check stops throughout the holiday season and that if a driver is charged with an impaired driving offence, they will automatically lose their driver’s licence for three months. If the alcohol related offence is the cause of injury or death, the driver will automatically lose their driver’s licence for six months. Both alcohol and drug-impaired drivers will be treated with equal severity.
Police are reminding Albertans to plan ahead when they are attending holiday events over the festive season. To get home safe, choose a designated driver before the party starts, call a sober person to meet you and drive you home or call a cab or use public transit.
