While police are checking for impaired motorists, drivers in Summerland have remained sober during the festive season.
Cpl. Bruce Haley of the Summerland RCMP detachment said check stops have been in place, but so far police have not issued any immediate roadside prohibitions for tipsy motorists.
“Maybe people are getting the message,” he said.
He urges party goers to have a designated driver or to call for a taxi if they have been drinking.
