Drunk drivers arrested
A woman arrested in Cornwall on Sunday is facing a drunk driving charge after she allegedly had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit.
Queens District RCMP held checkpoints at strategic locations over the weekend to target impaired drivers.
The RCMP arrested the 63year-old woman at the Cornwall Plaza after receiving an anonymous tip.
On July 3, the RCMP stopped a driver because the licence plate didn’t match the vehicle he was driving. The driver, who was already prohibited from driving, allegedly provided breath samples that showed his blood alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit.
Both drivers were given 90-day driving prohibitions and both were charged with impaired driving.
As a result of the checkpoints, the RCMP issued seven driving suspensions of seven days for drivers who blew warnings on roadside breath devices.
Three drivers were charged with driving while their licences were suspended.
The RCMP issued more than 30 tickets for not wearing a seatbelt or aggressive driving over the weekend.
