Stop­ping im­paired driv­ers was the fo­cus of the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP dur­ing the weekend of April 26-27.

Us­ing a num­ber of road checks and check stops, 19 driv­ers were charged un­der var­i­ous High­way Traf­fic Act of­fences by of­fi­cers.

As a re­sult, there were two seven-day sus­pen­sions is­sued to driv­ers for con­sum­ing al­co­hol.

At 1:45 a.m. on April 27 a 33-year-old Bay Roberts man was ar­rested at a ve­hi­cle stop on Route 70. His blood al­co­hol read­ings were nearly three times the le­gal limit.

The man was charged with im­paired driv­ing and driv­ing with a blood-al­co­hol mix­ture ex­ceed­ing 80 mil­ligrams of al­co­hol per 100 millil­itres of blood. He was re­leased on a prom­ise to ap­pear and will ap­pear in provin­cial court in Har­bour Grace in June.
