Prince George RCMP was kept busy during the holiday season, targeting impaired drivers through the month of December.

We issued a total of 46 driving suspensions in December, mostly for alcohol-related impaired driving offenses, but nearly a third were for drug-related impaired driving offenses.

Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

In total, PGRCMP issued the following suspensions in December:
