The Comox Valley RCMP reminds everyone that the annual Counter Attack program is in full swing.

“As you travel around the Valley, you will notice an increase in the amount of check stops,” said Const. Rob Gardner, in a press release. “Impaired driving is something that is looked for all year, but as Christmas parties are occurring this time of the year, we would like to remind everyone, please plan for a safe ride home and do not drive while intoxicated.”

Between Nov. 29 and Dec. 5, the Comox Valley RCMP took 11 impaired drivers off of the roads. Four drivers were served with 90-day immediate roadside prohibitions, one driver received a three-day immediate roadside prohibition and six drivers were given 24-hour driving prohibitions.
