Many thanks to the Wood Buffalo RCMP for sharing this information.

  • Designate a responsible person to be the sober driver.
  • Take a taxi or another form of public transportation.
  • Leave your vehicle overnight. Some places have services where they drive your vehicle home.
  • Utilize courtesy vehicles or shuttle services if available.
  • Be a good friend. Ensure those around you don’t drink and drive.


What to do if you Witness a Suspected Impaired Driver:

  • Always maintain a safe distance from any driver you suspect might be impaired.
  • Record the vehicle’s description (make, model, and color), vehicle license plate, direction of travel, description of the driver, and vehicle’s driving pattern.
  • When safe to do so, dial 911 or call your local police service directly. Never try to apprehend the impaired driver yourself.
