Six impaired drivers nabbed in Chilliwack RCMP CounterAttack campaign

Officers were set up on Yale Road overpass on Dec. 7

Six impaired Chilliwack drivers were taken off the road during the RCMP’s first CounterAttack campaign of the Christmas Season.

The “enhanced impaired driving intervention action” was conducted on Yale Road near the Highway 1 overpass in the evening on Dec. 7 by Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Service and frontline officers.

Mounties issued four immediate roadside prohibitions, which may carry a driving prohibition ranging from three to 90 days, and two 24-hour driving prohibitions.

“We urge anyone indulging in the consumption of alcohol or cannabis to be responsible and do not drive,” said Cpl. Mike Pfeifer of the Chilliwack RCMP in a press release. “Plan a safe means of getting home.”
