Weekend Counter Attack road blocks take 10 drivers off Kamloops roads

Police advise making a plan before going out to celebrate with some drinks. Book a designated driver, plan on taking a taxi or transit or call Operation Red Nose

Police say weekend road blocks led to six 90-day immediate roadside suspensions, one three-day immediate roadside suspension and three 24-hour immediate roadside suspensions, with another 20 violation tickets issued.
