Once again the Kitimat RCMP members have noticed that the residents of Kitimat have taken road safety in our town very seriously with an encouraging amount of intoxicated persons driving with designated drivers, taking taxis or supplied shuttles over the holiday season. Roadchecks were setup at many locations on several times during the holiday season with a noted positive response from responsible drivers happy at the enforcement, and the opportunity to interact with the local RCMP members.
