Drunk Driving Numbers

The Fort St. John RCMP is also advising the public that the force is vigorously cracking down on drunk drivers.

Over the past weekend alone, 9 people were charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle and driving over 0.08 per cent blood alcohol content.

These 9 people face a 24 hour driving prohibition, a 90 day license suspension, a towed vehicle, and a court date to answer to criminal code charges.

In addition, the RCMP handed out three 24 hour suspensions.

The Fort St. John RCMP is hoping these suspensions will serve as a warning to anyone considering driving under the influence – don’t drink and drive.

In 2007, 33 per cent of all fatal collisions involved impaired drivers
Drivers with high blood alcohol readings account for less than 1 per cent of all night time drivers
Drivers with high blood alcohol readings account for 70 per cent of all night time fatal collisions
62 per cent of all fatal or serious injury collisions occur between 6pm and 3am on weekends
