Williams Lake RCMP report quiet holiday season

Overall, it was a fairly quiet holiday season for the RCMP, said the Williams Lake RCMP in a press release Jan. 2.

Police responded to approximately 200 calls for service which included several motor vehicle accidents on the highways. New Year's Eve and morning brought a steady pace of alcohol involved disturbances.

The most notable was a large wedding reception New Year's Eve where several people were arrested due to intoxication and related ill behaviours. Several road checks were set up where a trend of decreased impaired driving continues. Public awareness and Operation Red Nose are likely two very significant contributors to this positive trend.

The Williams Lake RCMP wishes everyone a happy New Year. Please drive safely and allow for extra time when traveling due to the icy roads.
