CHARLOTTETOWN - Prince Edward Island RCMP are reminding all New Year's revellers of the importance of planning a safe drive home if they are celebrating.
Many Islanders will be attending house parties and bars tonight to ring in the New Year. RCMP are delivering a simple message; make plans to get home safe before the party starts; select a designated driver, schedule a cab, stay at a friend's house or take transit, where available.
Police will be conducting random checkpoints across the province targeting impaired drivers including those who are driving under the influence of drugs.
Impaired drivers can be on roadways at all hours of the day so RCMP are asking for the publicâ€™s
Anyone seeing a potential impaired driver should, pull over and call 911; state the location; vehicle description; license plate number; colour of vehicle; make and model of vehicle; direction of travel for the vehicle; description of driver
