SOURIS - A 49-year-old St. Charles man is facing impaired driving charges after being arrested by RCMP here Friday afternoon.

Kings District RCMP arrested the driver at 3:15 p.m. when he was going through a check stop set up at the causeway in Souris.

The driver was taken to the Montague detachment where he provided breath samples.

He was released on a promise to appear in Georgetown court at a later date.

RCMP asked that the motoring public continue to assist them in the detection and apprehension of impaired drivers.

“The Christmas season is often a time of increased drinking and driving,” said an RCMP press release. “Police will be vigilante of this throughout the entire holiday season in their ongoing efforts to keep our roadways safe.”

    Posters here realize the "release with a promise to appear" happens all the time, right? Police catch impaired drivers, the paperwork is done, the court date happens later...

    Time and trime again we read about Impaired Drivers at night, early morning, afternoon and alot of these individuals are repeat offenders. It is abvious the Judges are not handing out the appropriate sentences. Maybe they can't due to sentencing principles set in law, if so GET THE LAWS CHANGED. This behaviour takes up a large part of our Court dockets. This behaviour is totally unacceptable and there has to be a strong message sent from the Courts or this will continue. MAny thanks to all calling 911 and assiting our Police Agencies in their fight to make our raods safe and reduce seriuos injuries and death caused by people who contnue to drink and drive.

    A man who drove drunk at 3 in the afternoon was 'released on a promise' to do something. He probably went home, drank more, and drove again. This island needs to make drunk driving less appealing for these people. Lock them up, release their name and charge them ASAP. How many more people need to die before this is taken seriously?

      they have there constitutional right as a USELESS DRUNK to be free to get drunk again and maybe this time murder a child. and they have the blessing of this government to do so.
