There are signs along our highways urging you to call police if you see someone driving erratically.

Kings District RCMP charged a 25-year-old Montague man with impaired driving after investigating a complaint that a car had gone off the road in Lower Montague early Sunday morning

 The man was taken to the Montague RCMP detachment where he took a breathalyzer test and was charged. He will appear in provincial court in Georgetown at a later date.

Meanwhile, on Friday of last week RCMP intercepted a motorist in Wilmot Valley after they received a complaint of a possible impaired driver.

The 21-year-old female driver displayed signs of impairment so police used a Drug Recognition Expert to determine she was impaired by drugs. She has been released from custody and will appear in court on April 17 to answer to the charge of impaired driving by drugs.

The RCMP would like to remind the motoring public that the improper or illegal use of prescription medication and/or the use of illegal drugs may cause a driver to be impaired which could result in criminal charges.  

 The RCMP continues to encourage people to call 911 to report suspected impaired drivers.

    Keep up the great work. I love that the police can now test suspected drug impairment too. That should be done regularly .
