Merritt RCMP acknowledging responsible holiday partyers.
Despite several Christmas parties being held in Merritt over the weekend, Cst Tracy Dunsmore says officers didn't come across anyone driving intoxicated.
"I know there was quite a few parties this past weekend. The City of Merritt had theirs, emergency services and ministry of forests to name a few others. And, we did not have a any impaired driving charge. People are arranging for away home, and choosing not to get behind the wheel, so, so far, so good."
Dunsmore says keeping impaired drivers off the road remains a priority for the Merritt RCMP detachment over the holidays.
