35 Vehicles Were Impounded For Alcohol & Drug Use Over 3 Days In Vancouver

Vancouver Police

Vancouver Police have been revving up enforcement against impaired drivers and dozens of offenders were caught in just a few days.


Last weekend, a three-day CounterAttack blitz resulted in 44 license suspensions and 35 vehicle impoundings for alcohol and drug impairment.

The Vancouver Police Department says these CounterAttack roadblocks are going to continue throughout the summer.

“There is no excuse to drive drunk or stoned. If you try to get away with it, chances are you’ll get caught,” says Constable Steve Addison.

“Make a plan to get home safely, and if you’re planning to drink or consume marijuana, leave the keys at home”.

CounterAttack roadblocks are a partnership between the Vancouver Police Department and the Insurance Corporation of B.C., which aim to promote safe driving habits.

If you suspect someone of being an impaired driver, please call 9-1-1- immediately.
