SUMMERSIDE — East Prince RCMP arrested four individuals over the weekend for driving while impaired.
A 51-year-old Burlington man was arrested in Margate shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 21, as a result of a Highway Traffic Act investigation.
Shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, a 64-year-old Miscouche man was arrested in that community after police received a complaint from the public in relation to the individual driving while impaired.
Just after midnight Sunday, a 56-year-old Hamilton, Ont., man was arrested on Route 2 in Miscouche after police observed the vehicle he was driving cross the centre line as it approached the police vehicle.
Then, shortly after 3:30 a.m. Sunday, a 30 year-old-male Foxley River man was arrested on Route 11 near Miscouche as a result of a Highway Traffic Act investigation.
The four men will appear in provincial court in Summerside in February. Each has been issued a 90-day driving suspension.
RCMP East Prince hopes these individuals will be the last they have to arrest for impaired driving this holiday season but noted they will not hesitate to arrest anyone who decides to make the “poor decision” to drink and drive.
The RCMP will continue to respond to driving complaints from the public over the holidays and in 2013 in addition to conducting active patrols.
