I came in to work today (BC Ferries) and the morning crew told me a scary (though not shocking story).
Today's 08:00 sailing loaded and departed and a passenger reported a drunk driver aboard. The passenger also reported the drunk driver to police, and the crew coorrdinated with the RCMP to ensure they (the police) were there on the ship's arrival.
Our normal practice is to unload until we get to the vehicle the police want to stop, then stop discharge so there is no one behind the car they want. The driver in question was so drunk (remember, the ship left at 8 am) that the crew couldn't wake him up to drive off. The RCMP had to come aboard, and one of the officers had to drive the vehicle off. Keep in mind this guy would have been on the road before 8 AM to get to the ferry, then had he gone unnoticed, again at 9:30 AM.
