From the RCMP’s point of view, 2017 couldn’t have started out any better.
Despite New Year’s Eve falling on a Saturday night and with many people making big plans to ring in 2017, everything was rather quiet from a law enforcement point of view.
“No impaired drivers caught and no alchohol-related accidents,” said RCMP Sgt. Darren Oelke.
“New Year’s Eve historically can be busy or it can be very quiet. Luckily for us, even with New Year’s Eve on a Saturday night,people behaved themselves.
“I hope this tells me that people are being responsible and choosing to use a safe option for a ride home.”
