SGI is hoping residents take their message regarding not drinking and driving seriously this New Years.
2016 saw nearly 60 people killed in impaired driving collisions across Saskatchewan.
Manager of Media Relations Tyler McMurchy says with legislation for stricter penalties for impaired driving in place, the message is stronger than ever.
“Saskatchewan has some of the toughest impaired driving laws in the country, they got stronger in 2017 after being strengthened earlier in 2014,” states McMurchy.
“So, you’re looking at vehicle seizures, license suspensions and ignition interlock requirements. And that’s on top of any jail time.”
McMurchy says no matter the circumstance, driving impaired just isn’t worth the risk.
