RCMP light up streets

While people are busy lighting up their homes, RCMP and police departments on the Island are lighting up the roads with their presence.

On Dec. 2 officers across the Island stepped up enforcement along the Trans Canada Highway to let motorist know they will be on the prowl for dangerous drivers. The Light Up the Highway campaign will continue throughout the holiday season.

“It’s a visual reminder that we will be out and out on highways and arterial roads during the holidays,” said Cpl. Darren Lagan, of Island District RCMP. “We have all seen the tragic results of impaired driving.”
