Drunk driv­ers ar­rested

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

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.
