Impaired driving means operating a vehicle including cars, trucks, boats, snowmobiles and off-road vehicles while your ability to do so has been compromised to any degree by consuming alcohol, drugs or a combination of the two.

Driving while under the influence puts yourself in danger, as well as your passengers, other drivers and pedestrians.

Plan for a designated driver, take public transit, call a ride-sharing service, or arrange with a friend to stay the night.

Everyone must play a part in keeping our roadways safe.

Thank you to those members of our community who make the choice never to consume alcohol or drugs before driving. Never let anyone else drive if you know or suspect that may be impaired, call 9-1-1, save a life.
