Police in Delta say they are once again disappointed with the number of impaired drivers

November 16 and 17, Delta officers ticket 13 impaired drivers

It comes a few weeks after police took 10 impaired drivers off the road during one weekend

DELTA (NEWS 1130) – 13 impaired drivers were given tickets the weekend of November 16 and Delta officers are concerned.

“Our officers are pretty concerned about what they’re seeing on the roads,” the Delta police write in a Facebook post.

Earlier this month, police in Delta said they had to take 10 people off the road during a weekend blitz, even though they usually only see half that number during any given weekend.


Police say this time around, six drivers were given 90-day driving bans and had their cars impounded.

Another six drivers were given three-day driving suspensions because they blew a “warn”, and one other driver was given a 24-hour suspension.

Police are urging you to find a safe ride home.
