RCMP are inviting the public out to learn first-hand how alcohol impacts drivers.
Mounties are employing goggles, pedals, and a driving course to educate folks to the effects of impairment at a safe-driving education event next week.
The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD) challenges participants of all ages to navigate a pedal cart while “under the influence” wearing fatal vision goggles.
“We look forward to meeting you,” says Const. Tristan Williams of the UFVRD. “Experience the frightening effects of impairment to vision and decision making when skills while operating a vehicle.”
The public is invited to the event at the Cultus Lake Go-cart-track, 4088 Columbia Valley Hwy, on July 31 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Impaired driving prevention remains a priority to the RCMP commitment of road safety in the community.
