Check your headlights and rear lights to confirm they are all in working order

When walking, wear reflective items from the front and back

Do not make any U-turns for the ferry lane between Miller Rd and Mt Gardner. It›s unsafe and illegal.  

Finally, drink and smoke responsibly this holiday season. We have unfortunately already been successful in our roadblocks and patrols. We are getting impaired drivers off Bowen Island roads and we will continue our efforts. If you suspect someone is impaired or high and driving, please call 911.
