It’s described as a “palace of no-class comfort and bottom-level luxury.”
A tongue-in-cheek video released by police north of Toronto reminds motorists that taking the wheel while impaired will earn them a stay at “L’Hotel York Regional Police,” which features a concrete mattress and an open bathroom with stainless steel fixtures.
In one of several tweets promoting the public service campaign, York Region police posted a bill for a one-night stay at the “tawdry fortress of solitude,” totalling close to $13,000. A footnote on the bill states it does not include possible criminal charges or property damage costs.
Well played, York Regional Police! Hopefully the message gets through — – that drinking and driving is a deadly mix.
