MONTAGUE — A 37-year-old Millview woman will appear in court April 24 to answer impaired driving charges after Kings District RCMP stopped a vehicle in Montague in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Mounties observed a vehicle drossing the centre line several times on Main Street at about 2 a.m.

They stopped the vehicle, found the driver exhibited signs of alcohol impairment and took her to the Kings District RCMP office for a breath test.

The woman gave two breath samples over the 80 mgs/100 ml limit.

The woman was released from custody until her court date at Georgetown Provincial Court.

"If you are going to drink, make arrangements to get home safely," states a news release from Kings District RCMP. "Don't drive."

    If you read No Matter's comment it is obvious he is talking about another drunk driver to make his point about the court being too easy in impaired drivers. Whether it is a true case or not is an open question.

    D.U.I... is Driving Under the Influence. It's "illegal". I didn't read, anywhere in the article, about children or a husband depending on this person.... but I did notice a type-o... "drossing the center line", so, I read it closely, several times........It doesn't matter who the person is, they Broke The Law, and must pay the consequences. No different than carrying a firearm and shooting randomly... the majoty of the time, there is no one in the way of that projectile.. wether it be a bullet, or a car !!!!

    No Matter, so you think her children should suffer for her sins? I guess you would like her children and maybe husband to spend time in jail with her. She may not have been thinking of her family when she drove drunk, but apparently her family depends on her. In your rush for punishment you don't seem to care what innocent family is hurt. Red necks like you who have no compassion and take great joy in delivering punishment really bother me. Your self-righteousness is breathtaking.

      No, It's not apparent that she has kids or a husband, there is no mention of that anywhere in the story, therefore your comment is completely biased, based on the fact that you possibly know the woman in the story. She was driving drunk at 2am on a Saturday morning. She deserves whatever punishment she gets, end of story. If she had killed someone while driving drunk, I'm sure you would not be commenting.

      Bill MacKenzie- In the case I am talking about...I have a lot of compassion. After this particular incident I couldn't sleep thinking of this woman's children . But that was quickly squashed after seeing her victim's children and wife. Her victim couldn't work..still can't. Her victim went weeks without seeing his children. Her victim quickly became the person I felt compassion for...NOT the drunk driver. Doesn't matter if it is a woman, man whatever..You do the crime you do the time. So your telling me that....is a member of your family was hit and hurt badly by a drunk driver....and the driver was punsihed by law but than was let out...BECAUSE they have a job to go to..You would have compassion for them and say..hell ya...you drove drunk but since your needed...go on..be released. Cause if you can answer yes to that..than your a wonderful human being. Must be nice to be perfect.

      Bill, if she is DRUNK driving at 2 AM, I guarantee you she is not thinking AT ALL about her kids. She cannot care for her children when she is DRUNK, and her kids don't deserve to have to see her like that. If she continues to drive drunk, she will kill herself and/or someone else, and leave her kids (and possibly someone else's) as orphans. I'm glad she got caught and I hope she learns from it.

    It dosen't matter...Police say they are cracking down on drunk drivers but the courts and legal system is making a joke out of it. Case in point... a young woman was drunk, backed into a man pinning him against another vechile. She recieved 8 months, and would only serve 5.5 months. BUT than...only served a couple months and was released because she had to work to provide for her family. What a complete joke!
