Operation Red Nose in Williams Lake was kept busy this past weekend providing safe rides home for motorists and their vehicles from their holiday parties.
Dave Dickson, City of Williams Lake Community Safety Co-Ordinator runs down the numbers.
“On the night of the fourth, we did twenty-four rides and gave fifty-three people a safe ride home and then on the evening of the fifth, that was Saturday night, we did thirty-six rides giving ninety people a ride home”
Dickson also says you don’t have to be impaired to use this service. You may not feel comfortable driving as the weather might be bad, so we have a group of volunteers that would come and pick you and your vehicle up and safely drive you home.
Operation Red Nose will continue to offer this service friday and saturday night from December 11th to 19th and again New Years Eve from 9pm until 3am and the number to call is 250-392-22-22.
