|BC Ferries reminds its customers of their|
Zero Tolerance policy when it comes to
Drinking, driving and boarding the ferry
As a reminder for customers, the Ferry Corporation issued a statement yesterday to reinforce their policies and noting that anyone arriving at their terminals impaired whether by alcohol or drugs will be reported to police.
As part of their information notice they outlined that in the last fiscal year for the company 127 separate incidents required the attendance of police.
|RCMP detachments along|
the BC Ferries northern routes
are partners with the Ferry Service
in stopping Impaired Driving
BC Ferries has a strong working relationship with RCMP detachments and local police departments in the communities that it serves and should passengers make wrong choices during their travels, there's a very good chance that someone will be waiting to greet them upon their arrival at their destination.
