Abbotsford Police say they caught a few drivers who chose to drink and get behind the wheel after New Year’s celebrations.
Constable Ian MacDonald says they used roving patrols on New Year’s night to nab the drunk drivers.
"It was probably less than a dozen total. That would include twenty-four hour suspensions. We didn't have anything that was terribly egregious in terms of incidents like collisions or incidents where somebody blew four or five times the legal limit."
Macdonald says the numbers of drunk drivers busted this New Year’s in Abbotsford is likely lower than a year ago.
No word yet on how busy Vancouver Police and Lower Mainland Mounties were over New Years Night.
