Re: Kelowna, B.C., dubious winner as drunk-driving capital of Ca

I think if remove the "summer visitors" from the list Kelowna's rating
would drop through the floor.

i'm just wondering how we got on the list, i'm dead sure that the idiot drivers in Ontario HAVE to be drunk, and that was just in Windsor.

We have millions of thousands of summer visitors here, tens of thousands of them are "permanent" summer residents who own property here from the wild-west-drunk-driving-is-a-speeding-ticket USA, yet drunk driving isn't very much of an issue compared to other areas of Canada.

Everything bad that ever happens in BC is always the fault of "visitors." You should know this by now

It is a tourist problem and if any of you had visited you'd know that.

This is like a college town in the summer and even at the resorts in the winter.............

I wasn't surprised at the results,cause I drive here everyday.

Keep the fucking Albertan cowboys home and we'll be better off.

Haha, that excuse doesn't fly when you're attempting to argue this with someone who lives in the busiest and most-visited tourist region in the country that isn't even a blip as far as impaired driving charges goes.

A more reasonable explanation is that whatever police service serves Kelowna is bloody gung-ho about RIDE checks and, as a result, simply catches more people.

Ya ya ya

You should see the lakes up there in the summer.....packed with
houseboats which are mostly filled with drunken 20-somethings.
From my time up there the real hell raisers are visitors from Alberta.
But yes, the BC 20-somethings aren't far behind.

This past 10-15 years the RCMP and municipal police in BC have
made roadblocks a 365 day a year job. When the new laws came in
the bars, restaurants and pubs started bitching as booze sales
dropped. When we go out it's 1 glass of wine or a sleeve of beer.
I won't even drink a pint anymore.

cops can do all they want, they may save someone's life for that night, but it still remains a catch and release method...
