Yesterday morning, 9:00 a.m., RCMP officers observed a Green Volvo travelling southeast going well below the posted speed limit.
The vehicle was pulled over and police arrested the male driver for Impaired Driving. Breath samples were obtained with readings that were four times the legal limit of 80 mg%. The 68-year-old male driver from Beaver Bank will be appearing in Dartmouth Provincial Court on March 5th, 2014 to answer to charges of Impaired Driving.
The RCMP is committed to continuing educational and enforcement efforts under the Road Safety Strategy 2015 in order to reduce any unnecessary injuries and deaths on our roadways. We encourage the public to take part in this initiative by calling police with information on impaired drivers or if they suspect an impaired driver on the road to call 911 immediately and provide a license number if possible.
