December Counterattack proves successful in Chilliwack
Released by Cst. Tracy Wolbeck, Chilliwack RCMP UFVRD
impaired drivers were taken off the roads this past December during
the annual RCMP Counter Attack project. Although the message appears
to be getting out to the public about the dangers of drinking and
driving, there were still several alcohol related charges stemming
for the month-long project.
The Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Services Unit are considering the project a success. "Overall, I think we were effective out there," said Cpl. Lee Dyson.
Taking impaired drivers off the road is not just a December project, it is an on going mandate and one that is taken very seriously.
"The numbers definitely
reflect that we are taking these people off the roads and
potentially preventing accidents or even fatalities," said Cst.
Tracy Wolbeck. "The ultimate goal would be to have a Counter Attack
year where we saw no alcohol related charges or violation tickets
issued and there would be no measure of success greater than that."
