VicPD CounterAttack nets dozens of drunk drivers

Even the Victoria Police Department was surprised by its success this past weekend.

VicPD officers took 29 drunk drivers off the road, wrote 143 tickets for various infractions and ordered the inspection of 19 unsafe vehicles during the first weekend of its CounterAttack initiative.

“The number of impaired drivers taken off our streets this weekend is impressive,” Chief Jamie Graham said in a prepared statement. “I’m grateful for all the hard work that our officers continue to do to make our roads safe.”

CounterAttack road checks will continue throughout the holiday season throughout the Capital Region.
