Keeping impaired drivers off the road continues to be one of the RCMP’s national priorities.

Police have begun their Summer CounterAttack season, and for the month of July, a particular emphasis will be placed on locating Langley’s impaired drivers.

On Friday, July 3, the Langley RCMP will be out, actively looking for people who driving under the influence. Enforcement efforts will focus on several key areas in Langley.

Langley Mounties are also participating in the Light Up the Bridges campaign that will see roadblocks on local bridges.

On average, 86 people die in B.C. every year in crashes involving impaired driving, 23 of those in the Lower Mainland alone. Impairment remains a leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C.

“Motorists can expect Counter Attack checkstops at various locations throughout the Langleys,” said Sgt. Alex Mulvihill, NCO in charge of Langley RCMP Traffic Services.

“If you’re going to drink and drive in Langley, expect to get caught and dealt with according to the law.”
