This weekend, Surrey RCMP will be engaged in CounterAttack activities in addition to their regular traffic enforcement.

On July 23rd, 2016, the Surrey RCMP, in partnership with ICBC, will be conducting CounterAttack activities to help reduce the number of impaired related crashes. Our officers are always looking for impaired drivers throughout the year, however this weekend will include officers in several locations conducting roadblocks.

Why risk injuring yourself or others, says Corporal Scotty Schumann. Forty six per cent of impaired driving related deaths occur during summer months in B.C. If you or your driver are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, make the right choice and don’t get behind the wheel.

If your summer activities involve alcohol, plan ahead for a safe ride home, said Karen Klein, local ICBC road safety coordinator. Arrange a designated driver, call a taxi or take transit – there are so many options to get home safe.
