Don’t drink and drive


To the Editor:

Well, here we are into another Christmas season with everyone busy shopping and looking for that good buy and with the weather being on a roller coaster ride up and down.

We have had our first snowfall of the season that just lasted the one day and now mostly rain and damp for the past few days. But with the holiday season here, that gets a lot of people in to the party mood and with office parties and company parties taking place this time of the year that brings another problem. For in the past few days it has been on the news and on TV that DUIs are up across the Maritime Provinces and our police services asking drivers to not drink and drive. They are stepping up their check points and watching for drivers who have been drinking on our roadways.

So with a word of warning: Leave your keys at home or have someone do the driving who is a non-drinker for if you have an accident the life you take may not be your own. So drive safe and drive sober and make our highways a safe place for all of us.

Thank you and have a safe holiday, Merry Christmas.
