Community Peace Officers team up to the make the holidays safer
On Saturday, December 2, Lac La Biche County Peace Officers will be kicking off an education blitz to remind drivers to be safe this holiday season.
Peace Officers have been working with Alberta Health Services Injury Prevention staff and local students to prepare education materials on impaired driving. Students have been actively involved, and were provided with index cards to write a message regarding the risks of driving impaired. The cards will then be handed out during different roadside education events to drivers, who will also receive a little treat.
December unfortunately sees an increased amount of impaired drivers during the holiday season, and collisions also become more frequent. Drivers need to plan ahead. Arrange a ride, have a designated driver, or find accommodations if you have been drinking. Impaired driving can result in losing your license and being issued fines.
Help keep our highways safe and ensure that everyone can enjoy the Christmas holidays this year by not drinking and driving.
The first campaign starts on Saturday December 2, 2017 which is also National Impaired Driving Reduction Day across Canada. Officers will be out throughout the month and teaming up with other enforcement to remind drivers of the dangers of drinking and driving.
