BC Ferries is reminding passengers that no drugs or alcohol are ever allowed on board their vessels.

The consumption of drugs and alcohol on the ferries and at terminals is prohibited, but in June, there were 15 separate incidents where police were called out to a BC Ferries property because of a suspected impaired passenger.

It’s against the law to operate a motor vehicle on BC Ferries’ ships or at its terminals while under the influence.

BC Ferries says passengers suspected of operating their vehicles while intoxicated will be reported to local police.

Anyone who witnesses the consumption of drugs or alcohol is asked to report it to a BC Ferries employee.
