As we reach the final day of 2022, many of us will be off to visit friends and family, or perhaps take in one of the list of New Year's Eve events planned for across the Northwest.
And if you're heading off to one of those events, or family gathering, make sure that you approach the event with moderation when it comes to alcohol or other substances, or ensure that you have a reliable and sober ride home as 2022 kicks into 2023.
As they have through the holidays, the RCMP across the region will be on alert for any impaired driving offences, not to be the New Year's Eve party poopers, but instead, to make sure that we all make it 2023 alive.
You may encounter roadside checks through New Years Eve as members of detachments across the northwest take to their duties to ensure a safe travel from this year to next.
Prince Rupert members have been busy through the holiday period, with occasional road side checks and a few calls for assistance related to impaired operators.
So for those prepare to ring in 2023, party hearty, just do so responsibly as we look forward to the new year that beckons.
