Kamloops Mounties caught a number of impaired drivers behind the wheel this past weekend.
During four Counter Attack check stops, police issued:
- 6 90-day immediate roadside suspensions
- 3 3-day roadside suspensions
- 1 provincial roadside suspension for drugs
"The consequences of impaired driving are massive," says Cpl. Jodi Shelkie in a news release. "You're risking your life and the lives of others. You can be charged criminally and the ripple effect on you, your family and friends can be huge."
