 Prince George RCMP is reminding the public to make sure they are enjoying themselves responsibly when it comes to celebrating, or commiserating, a sports teams’ wins and losses.

On May 28, 2022, police officers with the Prince George RCMP’s Municipal Traffic Services unit were patrolling in the area of Domano Boulevard and St. Lawrence Avenue and witnessed several vehicles leaving the softball diamond in the area.

Police stopped four drivers in between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. who were found to be driving while impaired by alcohol. Investigators used an Approved Screening Device to determine the drivers’ levels of impairment: three of the four drivers produced a fail reading, and the fourth driver produced a warn reading.

If you are old enough to buy liquor then you are old enough to understand the consequences of driving while impaired. Make alternative arrangements to get home safely without putting yourself and the motorists around you in jeopardy, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

The drivers who produced a fail reading were issued 90-day driving prohibitions and their vehicles were impounded for 30 days. The driver with the warn reading was issued a three-day driving prohibition and their vehicle was impounded for three days.

Police will continue to be on patrol for impaired drivers in our community throughout the summer months. We encourage everyone to enjoy their summer responsibly.
