Sask. police charge hundreds for impaired driving in December

Drinking and driving is a problem any time of the year, but it seems to have been especially bad during the holidays.

In December, police kept an eye out for impaired driving, charging 264 people with impaired driving or driving while over 0.08 (BAC). That number is still about 50 fewer people than were charged in December 2013 when police were working on the same focus. However, it's three times as many as were charged in May 2014 (80).
