Mounties are reminding drivers to not drink and drive this holiday season.

Police in the Comox Valley have seen a big spike in impaired drivers this year.

Inspector Tim Walton says he’s not sure why there’s been a big increase this year, but it’s important people don’t drink and drive. Walton says it’s important to plan ahead and arrange a safe ride home.

He notes you’re not just facing a fine or arrest if you get caught, but you could seriously hurt or even kill someone else on the road.
