It looks like Saskatoon drivers are getting the message at least one night of the year when it comes to drunk driving.
Saskatoon police reported that their New Year’s Eve checkstop blitz saw around 1,000 drivers screened over the course of the night.
Of those, one person was charged with impaired driving. Several liquor-related tickets were also issued.

Police thanked the many designated drivers they found behind the wheel during their checkstops.
They also thanked several people who used Tim Horton’s gift cards handed out to sober drivers to buy coffee for officers who were out checking vehicles on a night that saw temperatures dip below – 30 C.
