Canada Day Partying Costly for Two Drivers.
Prince George, B.C.- Two drivers, heading out of the West Lake area on Canada Day, found their celebrations were just a bit too much to pass the test.
RCMP in Prince George issued a 90 day license suspension to one driver who also had his vehicle impounded for 30 days after blowing a ‘fail’ on the roadside breathalizer.
Another driver was issued a 24 hour license suspension.
Police remind everyone who wants to enjoy these summer days that alcohol and boating, floating and certainly driving, do not mix. Alcohol can impair judgement and result in tragedy on the water .
That message needs to apply to those who are getting out of the water after hours in the sun and having a ‘beverage’ as they float down the river. In some cases, those same floaters load the floatation device into the back of their truck and then get behind the wheel.
RCMP will be watching the traditional river exit points ( Foothills bridge, Wilson Park, Nechako River boat launch) to ensure drivers are sober.
