The Winnipeg Police Service strongly encourages all motorists to have a plan in place before you go out this holiday season and throughout the year. 

Taking a cab, contacting Operation Red Nose or simply identifying a designated driver, are some options to consider. As well, Winnipeg Transit is once again partnering with Manitoba Public Insurance to offer free transit service on New Year's Eve starting at 7:00 p.m. and continuing until end of service.

The message is simple, if you choose to drink, DON'T DRIVE.

Constable Jason Michalyshen, Public Information Officer
