Chilliwack: RCMP and local liquor stores are spreading the message school kids are sending to motorists over the Christmas Season – Don’t Drink and Drive.
Paper bags collected from four local Liquor Stores by a Chilliwack RCMP officer were offered to the students of six elementary schools for their artistic statements cautioning motorists not to drink and drive. With art completed the bags were returned to the stores for circulation to consumers.
“Our goal is to heighten awareness to the danger and the prevention of impaired driving in the community during the Holiday Season,” said Constable Zachary Leheniuk of the Chilliwack RCMP.
With December’s CounterAttack campaign underway the RCMP will also be doing their part to remove impaired drivers from roadways through enhanced traffic enforcement over the holiday season.
“We encourage motorists to listen to the kids and arrange ahead of time for a safe ride home if ‘spirits’ are part of plan,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
Plan a safe trip home:
Avilable Fridays and Saturdays after 9 p.m. during the month of December Operation Red Nose drivers can be contacted at 604-393-3000 to provide a means of getting home safely.
