New Year’s is a time of celebration, but it can turn into a nightmare if you’re not safe behind the wheel. Comox Valley RCMP Constable Don Sinclair has a few words, putting emphasis on drinking and driving.

Driving while impaired may not seem like a big deal, but it can cause a lot of problems for police and residents.

So be safe this holiday season. If you’re going to be drinking, make sure you have a way back home to ensure a happy New Year!
