Mission RCMP issue four driving suspensions during holiday season

Police continue to conduct road checks throughout the year

Mission police issued four 90-day immediate roadside driving prohibitions to impaired drivers over the holiday season.

“We were very pleased to find that most persons enjoying the festive season were responsible and had made appropriate transportation arrangements,” said Mission RCMP Sgt. Shaun Wright.

Police conducted numerous road checks during the evenings in December. The checks were set up on major thoroughfares as well as areas near licensed establishments.

Police periodically check for impaired drivers throughout the year, but step up the frequency during the holidays, said Wright.
