Yes, its St Patricks Day Weekend. Blarney stones, green beer and jigs will be the order of the day this coming Sunday. Lots of fun to be had by all but we should also remember to enjoy the celebration and party responsibly.
Here is an article from the Milton Canadian Champion about Halton Police’s plans this weekend.
Halton police watching on St. Pat’s weekend
Police are reminding residents to plan ahead if their evening is going to involve any amount of drinking.
Such planning can include assigning a designated driver, calling a cab or using public transportation.
Police said being prepared ahead of time is key to avoiding the temptation to get behind the wheel while intoxicated.
The consequences of impaired driving are severe and can result in licence suspensions, vehicle impoundments, fines and even jail.
Police said those who drink and drive not only put themselves in danger, but their passengers and other motorists as well.
Residents who suspect a person is driving while impaired are asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
The Halton Regional Police Service has stated it is committed to combating drinking and driving and keeping Halton’s roads safe.
