Local Cops Ready For Road Check Season

It's counter-attack road check season for the RCMP.

That means a crackdown on impaired driving over the holidays.

Salmon Arm Staff Sergeant Scott West says our area is no different than any other "We will have staff on that will be focused on this, and our regional Highway Patrol has this as a priority as well."

West tells us that this also applies to cannabis impairment, saying "Anyone who's using cannabis while they're driving will be dealt with according to all of our provincial and federal legislation."
