Do not mix drinking and driving

While the impaired driving message is getting through, it hasn’t reached everyone. We are still averaging about 113 people killed each year in B.C.

Don't put your kids at risk!

When your child is travelling with you, they’re at a much higher risk of serious injury or death. They are more vulnerable because of their size, weight, and ability to react in a collision.

Make sure you’re using an approved child safety seat, and you’re using it correctly.
