On the 12th day of Christmas Columbia Valley RCMP pulled over 12 drivers drinking.
Police actually took a dozen motorists off the road over a seven day stretch.
Mounties describe several different incidents last week during check stops and general patrols that led to tickets being handed out.
Many of the investigations were initiated by drivers failing to stop at stop signs.
In one incident, RCMP pulled over a sedan that was travelling over the centre line only to watch the drive hit up over the curb when bringing the vehicle to a stop.
The Columbia Valley detachment says thy’re increasing their vigilance toward impaired driving this holiday saeason.
