Surrey RCMP rewarding designated drivers tonight.

SURREY (NEWS1130) – Mounties in Surrey are taking a different approach to ticketing tonight.

They’ll be rewarding people who help to get their family and friends home safely with $2 coffee cards.

RCMP say they look forward to being able to reward those who are doing the right thing in choosing not to drink and drive.

This is in addition to regular Counterattack road checks, nabbing those who do drink and then choose to get behind the wheel.

With tomorrow being New Year’s Eve, you’re being reminded to arrange your plans ahead of time. Get a designated driver, call a taxi, or take transit.


CAW worried bus drivers at risk with new drunk driving laws

Fears over rowdy crowds on late night transit.

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The Canadian Autoworkers Union says it is all for tougher drunk driving laws, but it is worried about a possible influx of rowdy passengers using late night bus service.

Don MacLeod with the union tells us bus drivers are worried about being assaulted. “If we are serious about reducing drunk driving, then we have to give those out there drinking good options to take transit.”

MacLeod believes the sparse night service needs to be improved. “I think we have to give more options to passengers that choose to leave their vehicle, park [it] and take transit.”

He says the driver is in charge of the safety of the coach. “If we have intoxicated passengers on board that are rowdy… compromising the safety of the coach, that is always a concern to our members.”

There were 145 assaults on TransLink drivers in 2009.
