RCMP check stops motorist on Friday afternoon

SOURIS - In the middle of Friday afternoon, a Kings District RCMP checkstop identified and detained an impaired driver at the causeway.

At approximately 3:15 pm, Dec. 20, Kings District RCMP arrested the driver at a checkstop set up at the causeway.

The 49-year-old male from St. Charles, approximately 15km northwest of Souris, was taken to the RCMP detachment in Montague where he provided breath samples as required, resulting in charges related to impaired driving.

He  was released the same day on a promise to appear in Georgetown court at a later date.

The RCMP continues to encourage the motoring public to assist them in the detection and apprehension of impaired drivers on Island highways.

The holiday season is often a time of increased drinking and driving, and police advise they will be vigilante in their ongoing efforts to keep our roadways safe.

    There will be people driving under the influence until cars disappear. Vilification does not solve this problem. If the Police, politicians, and MADD can't come up with something better, that actually solves the problem, then please stop bombarding us in the media with the obvious. For those that follow history, it's worth researching Frances Willard.
