Local Mounties apprehend more intoxicated drivers

The Fort St. John RCMP detachment cracked down on impaired drivers over the weekend.

Police conducted road check stops on the Alaska Highway and throughout the City. Now, 13 drivers face charges for driving while intoxicated, while 15 drivers were issued 24-hour driving suspensions.

Officers from Dawson Creek and Quesnel Traffic services assisted in the blitz.

Meanwhile, police issued 233 traffic violation tickets, which included 47 for seat belt non-compliance and 86 speeding offences.

In September, officers apprehended 80 impaired drivers. Mounties say with all the education and enforcement being conducted, it is unclear why motorists continue to drive while under the influence.
