New Year, Same Warning: Don't Drink and Drive

We are still in the midst of the holiday season, and many will be ringing in 2018 with a few beverages; the RCMP is reminding you to not drink and drive

Many will be looking for a party to ring in the new year, and the RCMP are reminding everyone they will be out in full force, watching for impaired drivers.

Corporal Leigh Drinkwater with the Vegreville RCMP says there are no tricks to help you sober up faster.

Drinkwater adds that in addition to being charged with driving while intoxicated, there are also road side suspensions and vehicle seizures that can come forward, even if you're not over the legal limit.
