Get home safe this holiday season

Province-wide, those numbers increase to 10 deaths and 36 serious injuries between December 24 and January 1 on average. 

Police will be out in full force during that time, so party goers are encouraged to find a safe ride home ahead of time. ICBC recommends choosing a designated driver before heading out or keeping money stashed for a taxi ride. 

The responsibility of being the sober driver should be shared, and a good host should have non-alcoholic drinks available for them. Lastly, someone should never get in the car with an impaired driver, and insist that their loved ones don’t get behind the wheel while under the influence. 

Stay safe this holiday season.
