Driving up to a road check with a crack pipe in one hand and a lighter in the other isn't the brightest idea, a Victoria, B.C. police officer says.

In a cheeky post on the Victoria Police Department's website this week, Const. Graeme Leblanc shared his top 10 things not to do at a road check. All the examples are cases he saw as a member of the road safety unit.

The list includes the following suggestions:

* Don't "have a beer in your hand as you're driving up to the roadblock. When confronted by the officer, put the beer in the center console and deny any knowledge."

* Don't "use your truck to do the Dukes of Hazzard over the centre median."

* Don't "drive up and stop...50 metres short of a police roadblock. Trade places with the driver because he is drunk and doesn't have a licence because of his previous impaired charges."

And, of course, you may wish to avoid this scenario: "As you are driving up to a police roadblock, forget to stop, smash into the vehicle in front of you at 50 km/h, pushing that car into a third vehicle. This all happens because you are so hammered you have trouble walking. Police have to physically remove you from the vehicle and place you into the police car. Pretend you can't speak English. Refuse to provide a breath sample, blah, blah, blah."
