Impaired driver apprehended at 3:30 a.m.
A Kimberley RCMP officer was returning from a call in the Wasa area on May 30, when he observed a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner.
The vehicle traveling along Highway 95A at 3:30 a.m. was fluctuating in speed from well below the posted limit to above. The officer conducted a traffic stop and noted signs of alcohol consumption.
The driver could not produce her driver’s licence and when asked, provided a name the officer did not believe was correct. He questioned the driver and conducted queries and determined she in fact provided a false name, likely because she was prohibited from driving.
The breath demand was read and two breath samples were obtained, both producing a ‘fail’ reading.
The driver is prohibited from driving for 90-days and vehicle impounded for 30 days. In addition she faces charges of Obstruct a Peace Officer and Drive While Prohibited.
“Police are always on the lookout from impaired drivers and they are apprehended and removed from the road at all hours,” said Sgt. Chris Newel, Kimberley RCMP Detachment commander.
