MONTAGUE — RCMP say a 41-year-old Roseneath man pulled over for speeding Saturday was doing so while impaired and in a vehicle that was not registered or inspected.

Kings District RCMP stopped a vehicle for speeding just before 5 p.m. Saturday and noticed open liquor in the vehicle and signs of impairment about the driver.

Mounties took the driver to the RCMP Kings District office in Montague where he provided samples that were over the 80 mg/100 ml limit.

He was also issued summary offence tickets in relation to operating a vehicle that was not registered or inspected.

He will appear in Georgetown Court on March 6 on the impaired driving related charges.

    Inigo, that's an odd comment. Blame the government for the choices made by an individual who broke at least 5 laws. No insurance (can't without inspection), registration, speeding, inspection and the biggest, the DUI. How is that anyone's fault other than the criminal? This person could easily buy booze and stockpile it to be consumed at any time even if the store hours were M - F, 9-5. What's needed is the funding to be doing checkpoint stops in random places on a daily basis. A team of cops that only do this regularly. Then laws that have stiffer penalties for the above offenses. Such as treating a DUI like attempted murder, DUI causing death like 2nd degree murder and similar penalties. I'd rather see someone get 20+ years for killing while DUI, rather than the typical slap on the wrist of 2-4 they often get.

    Its true that theres lots of chances to buy booze but its not the governments fault if people make bad choices. I do not understand how we can blame everyone else for the choices we make .Have a great day and thanks for reading

    WHY??? Because there are liquor stores galore open 7 days a week plus our Gov. sells it in stores also plus bootleggers.They are even open on Sundays and the more people that drink/drive=more money 4 Gov.and the more people that get killed from these drunk drivers =less money to b payed out saving on ei welfare pensions Can. Pension So all this benefits the Gov.
