Long Weekend Counter Attack

This B.C. Day long weekend, our roads will be busy. Some people will be planning for a getaway and others visiting local parks and restaurants. Over the B.C. Day long weekend, on average, 75 people are injured in 330 crashes on Vancouver Island every year. No matter what your plans are, if you plan to drink or consume cannabis, don't drive.

Police will be setting up CounterAttack roadchecks across the province to get impaired drivers off our roads. If you're caught driving impaired, you could end up paying in a number of lasting ways – from increased insurance premiums to fines, car impoundment or even jail time.

2020 Summer Counter Attack Impaired Driving Campaign has begun!

If you will be out and consuming alcohol or recreational drugs, please plan a safe ride home. Hosting a get together? Remember that you have responsibilites for your guests when you are serving intoxicants. There is no excuse for driving while impaired and BC has some significant penalties for drivers who make the wrong choice.
