Holiday Road Checks Coming To An Area Near You

The Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP say that Counter-Attack road checks are on the way.

Salmon Arm's RCMP Staff Sergeant Scott West says that it will be no different with officers in Salmon Arm, and notes that finding a safe way home is much better than the alternative "We do have taxi companies, and we do have transit - if they're running at the time, or find a safe ride home with a friend. Worst comes to worst a bit of couch surfing might be worth your driver's license."

West says that he believes more people are getting the message about the dangers of impaired driving.

ICBC says that Christmas and New Years result in an average of 460 accidents and five deaths around B.C each year.
