MONCTON, N.B. – With New Year’s Eve upon us, Codiac RCMP are once again reminding everyone not to drink and drive.

RCMP Constable Damien Theriault says RCMP and municipal forces across the province will be out in full force tonight to ensure everyone plays safe.

“Chose a designated driver to drive everyone home safely after the party.  You can also sleep over wherever the party is.  Or, if you’re lucky enough to be somewhere where there’s cab service, call a cab.”

Theriault also says the host of a party has a responsibility to ensure guests are not drinking and driving, and should offer to put them up for the night or call them a cab.
