Ride with Ru­dolph – you could save a life!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

De­spite the fact that Ma­gog’s Nez Rouge ser­vice has be­gun op­er­at­ing, four drivers were ar­rested by the Regie de po­lice de Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) over the week­end. Among the four men aged be­tween 26 and 53, two recorded an al­co­hol level more than 80 mg, one of those be­ing more than twice the le­gal limit while the other was more than three times the le­gal limit. The lat­ter driver, a man from Ste-Cather­ine de Hat­ley, missed a curve along Ma­gog Road and hit a con­tainer and a con­crete block in a pri­vate drive­way. A fire broke out in his ve­hi­cle and the res­i­dent of the home put it out with an ex­tin­guisher. The driver suf­fered mi­nor in­juries but re­fused help from the paramedics who ar­rived on the scene. Be­sides the crim­i­nal ac­cu­sa­tions that will be lev­elled against them, all of the drivers saw their driv­ing per­mits sus­pended for 90 days while two of the drivers had their ve­hi­cles seized for 30 days also.
