Eleven people charged for alcohol related offences this past weekend

**** RCMP Media Release

Eleven people charged for alcohol related offences this past weekend

Members of Halifax District RCMP and RCMP Traffic Services have charged eleven people with alcohol-related offences between January 17 and January 19. Five people were charged with alcohol-impaired driving, and an additional six people were issued driving suspensions due to their blood alcohol concentration.

“It’s pretty clear to police that being sober and focused on driving when you get behind the wheel is an obvious way to prevent serious and fatal collisions,” says Cst. Chad Morrison of Nova Scotia RCMP Traffic Services. “We need drivers to​ get the message so that they do their part in helping to keep our roads safe for everyone.”

Nova Scotia RCMP would like to remind everyone on the road to call us to report unsafe driving. The RCMP can be reached anywhere in Nova Scotia by calling 1-800-803-RCMP (7267). If it’s an emergency, call 911.
