Police nab nine drunk drivers, Canada Day blitz to continue
Monday may not be a holiday, but that won't stop the "long weekend" blitz on drunk drivers by Hamilton Police.
Nine people were nabbed for impaired driving over the weekend, police say, just two days into the four-day faux long weekend, which bridges over Monday into Tuesday's Canada Day holiday.
Under the project name, "Compliance is Free," Hamilton Police have been on the lookout for impaired and aggressive driving. In 2013, police say there were 828 alcohol-related driving infractions. In that same year, 121 collisions involved alcohol.
