The Holiday Season is fast approaching, meaning it is time now to plan for safe travels when you're celebrating.

West Vancouver Police and our policing partners with North Vancouver RCMP urge everyone to ensure plans for holiday celebrations involving any intoxicants include provisions for a safe trip home. 

Police across the province work proactively throughout the year to identify and remove impaired drivers from the road.

And as the frequency of celebrations increases with the holiday season, drivers can expect the annual increase in the number of Police Counterattack Road Checks.


Taxii, transit, or a fully sober designated driver can all help reduce the risk for you and others on the road.

With all our partners in emergency response, West Vancouver Police are proud to once again support the all-volunteer 'Operation Red Nose-North Shore (nsorn.org) as an option for getting you and your vehicle home safely. 

The time to plan on how to get home safely is before you begin celebrating.  Operation Red Nose allows you, by donation, to have volunteers safely transport you and your vehicle home safely.

This year’s North Shore Operation Red Nose will begin on Friday, November 30th, 2018 and run up to and including New Years Eve.

Helping launch this year’s efforts were representatives from Operation Red Nose (mascot Rudy the reindeer), West Vancouver Police, North Vancouver RCMP and ICBC.

Operation Red Nose is a charitable program run by the North Shore Rotary Club and ICBC Road Sense. To learn more information or volunteer check operationrednosenorthshore.com.
