Alcohol-impaired driving

“If your activities involve drinking, plan ahead for a safe ride home. Arrange a designated driver, call a taxi, a friend, or a ride-hailing service, or take transit. If you’ve been drinking at home, stay home and don’t drive.

Sadly, each year in B.C., 64 people die in crashes involving impaired​ driving. Almost a third of these happen in the summer and some occur during the December holidays. 

No matter what time of year, there are many options to get home safely if you’ve had a drink or two. So, whether it’s after work or play, make the smart choice. Remember, the best time to decide how to get home responsibly is before you start drinking. ​

Police across the province look for impaired drivers at CounterAttack roadchecks during summer and winter. ICBC supports enforcement activities such as roadchecks to help make our roads safer for everyone.”
