St. Patrick’s Day is traditionally a day of celebration with friends and family at home and at local licensed establishments.
Orangeville Police reminds residents that officers will be vigilant throughout the community to ensure the safety of everyone in the community.
“Our officers will be vigilant for offences such as Impaired Driving, Public Intoxication and other Liquor Licence Act offences, and noise complaints”, said Chief Wayne Kalinski.
If you’re going to be consuming alcohol choose a designated driver, plan on using a taxi service, or plan to spend the night where you are drinking. Celebrating responsibly ensures the safety of everyone.
Drivers caught driving impaired by drugs or alcohol will face a 90 day driver’s license suspension, seven day vehicle impounded and criminal charges. The consequences of driving impaired are costly, however causing serious injury or death to yourself or someone else is life altering.
Have a Safe and Happy St. Patrick’s Day
