Four impaired drivers taken off local roads

Kimberley RCMP took four impaired drivers off the road over three days.  The first occurred Thursday night when an officer pulled a vehicle over for speeding on Hwy 95A near St Mary’s Lake Road.  Two more were apprehended on Friday night at a road check held just east of Kimberley.  Those took place within minutes of each other.  The fourth was Saturday afternoon. Police received a driving complaint and stopped the vehicle in Kimberley.

In each case officers noted signs of alcohol consumption and made a breath demand. The driver’s supplied breath samples that registered a “Fail” on the Roadside Screening Device.  The drivers were served an Immediate Roadside Prohibition which prohibits them from driving for 90 days; the vehicles were impounded for 30 days.    In one case the driver was suspended from driving due to an impaired driving conviction in 2009.  He will attend court in May to deal with that charge.
