Is it your turn to get your friends home safe?    

During the Canada Day weekend and all summer long please plan ahead and drive safe.

Whether you’re golfing, boating or hosting a BBQ with friends, if your summer activities involve alcohol, make sure you plan ahead for a safe ride home.

This summer, ICBC is supporting its police partners in preventing impaired driving with a CounterAttack awareness campaign.

The campaign reminds you to plan ahead during summer celebrations and choose a safe way home—call a cab, take transit, or choose a designated driver.  We’re promoting this message with a designated driver TV ad and CounterAttack radio ads running province-wide.

We want everyone to enjoy their summer and have a good time.  Here are a few tips to keep our roads safer:

  • Being a designated driver is a shared responsibility; take your turn to help get your friends home safely.
  • Plan your safe ride home before you start drinking. If you’re going to drink, choose a designated driver before heading out.
  • Use other safe options to get home safely: call a taxi, take transit, use a shuttle service, or call a sober friend.

Know before you go. Be prepared for a safe drive this summer.   For changing road conditions, visit www.drivebc.com.
