On Sunday night at approximately 7 p.m., Taber/Vauxhall members set up a check stop on Highway 524 near Hays as there was a large amount of traffic coming from a party that had been in the Rolling Hills area.
There were multiple 24-hour licence suspensions, GDL licence suspensions and liquor tickets issued.
The Taber/Vauxhall RCMP would like to remind the public that the legal drinking age is 18 and that impaired driving is a serious offence which could result in a year driving prohibition, thousands of dollars in fines as well as getting a criminal record. Impaired driving does not only affect the offending driver but the other users of the highway who are expecting to get home safe and shouldn't have to pay for the offending driver's choice to get behind the wheel. No amount of liquor is "safe,” as everyone's tolerance is different. If you hold a GDL licence, there is zero tolerance for consumption before driving, which means even a couple sips of an alcoholic beverage and you will lose your licence automatically for a month.
If anyone has any questions about impaired driving or the GDL licence program, please call Taber/Vauxhall RCMP at 403-223-4447.
