Several hours of sleep won’t necessarily sober you up before work

Police officers snared a total of seven impaired drivers during weekend check stops in Courtenay and Campbell River.

Officers from North Vancouver Island Traffic Services snared a total of seven impaired drivers during weekend check stops in Courtenay and Campbell River.

The officers, looking for impaired drivers, identified four within several hours June 1 on Cumberland Road in Courtenay. They were served Immediate roadside prohibitions and had their vehicles impounded.

The following day, the unit set up a stop check in Campbell River. The morning check stop resulted in three Immediate roadside prohibitions and three vehicle impoundments.

In most of the cases encountered, the drivers were on their way to work.

The public is reminded that going to sleep for a few hours after a night of drinking does not ensure sobriety in the morning. The more alcohol a person consumes, the longer it takes for their body to

metabolize the drug out of the body.

So if you may have overdone your merry-making the night

before, please use a cab ride or a sober friend as a means of getting around the morning after.
