What ever the count, I do feel safer knowing some of the drinking drivers are being caught and taken off-road.
Really people it's so easy to arrange a ride when you want to drink away from home.
Hopefully the more frequent roadside checking is encouraging people make more responsible choices.
Please everyone, either drink & ride or stay home and contribute to our island safety. Too many innocent people die because of drunk drivers.

Hello RCMP, I am hearing a lot of reports of people suspended for drinking and driving while they do not blow near a .08. Are there new laws and restrictions in place now? Could you please explain them to all of us.
