The Saugeen Shores Police Service would like to remind people that impaired related occurrences happen at any hour of the day. If you are consuming to excess the night before, there is a good chance you will still be intoxicated when you wake up in the morning. The only way to sober up is time, there are no quick remedies. We all share the same roads, let’s make them as safe as possible.
