Pubnico, Nova Scotia: RCMP charge man for impaired operation… of a golf cart

RCMP Traffic Services has charged a man for impaired driving while operating a golf cart.

On June 1 just before 8:30 p.m., RCMP Traffic Services was finishing up a traffic stop near Pubnico on Highway 103. The officer noticed a golf cart driving illegally on the road.

The RCMP officer stopped the golf cart and noticed open liquor, and signs that the driver was impaired. The golf cart was towed and the driver was taken to a nearby detachment for a breath test. The 47-year-old man from Upper Woods Harbour is facing charges of Impaired Driving and Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Content over 80mg%. He will appear in Yarmouth Provincial Court on August 15, 2016.

The RCMP would like to remind citizens that if you choose to operate any motor vehicle (i.e. boat, lawn tractor, segway, ATV etc.) after consuming alcohol or drugs, you can be charged with impaired driving. If convicted, you risk losing your privilege of operating a vehicle in Canada for up to one year, and you may also be handed a hefty fine. Remember, there are no Mulligans when it comes to impaired driving. By driving impaired, you’re risking the safety of your friends, family and everyone around you.
