Campbell River RCMP responded to 417 calls for service in the week of July 22, which is up from 347 the year before.

The detachment would like to remind people that impaired driving is just not an acceptable action. In the past week, RCMP have removed nine vehicles and drivers from the roads for various levels of impairment.

“If you are drinking or doing any kind of drugs that impair your ability to drive, put your keys away and call a cab or call a friend, but please just don’t drive,” Tyre said.

The driver was issued tickets for several infractions due to the incident, and it is believed that alcohol and drugs were contributing factors in the crash.
