Labour Day Saturday drunk drivers

Labour Day Saturday for police in Rockland began with one impaired driving case and finished with another one.

Police had a traffic check stop on Alma Street in Rockland on September 5 and pulled over one vehicle at 1:45 a.m. The driver failed the roadside screening device test and was taken to the detachment for a Breathalyzer test.

The Breathalyzer test resulted in charges of impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding 80 milligrams.

About 17 hours later an early-evening traffic complaint on Laporte Street in Rockland resulted in another arrest for suspected drunk driving.

Following results of a Breathalyzer test, police charged the driver with impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding 80 milligrams.

In both cases the drivers had their licences suspended for 90 days and their vehicles impounded for seven days. Their cases are now scheduled for a future session of provincial court in L’Orignal.
