STANLEY BRIDGE — Bystanders in the Stanley Bridge area were able to stop a vehicle and contact RCMP after witnessing the vehicle being driven in a manner that suggested drunk driving.

The incident occurred just after 4 p.m. Thursday when the vehicle veered into the oncoming lane, forcing other vehicles on to the shoulder of the road. The bystanders got the erratically driven vehicle stopped after it hit a stop sign. 

Queens District RCMP arrested a 46-year-old woman from the New London area and charged her with impaired driving and refusing to provide breath samples.

She is scheduled to answer the charges in provincial court on June 23.

    Great job and you all probably stopped someone from being seriously injured or killed! I don't think a plate would have helped or will help. I think first offense should be 6 months in jail and NOT weekends! Period! You make that choice to get behind that wheel then away you go to jail. That might stop people from doing so.

      Why? The plate she had on was just as visible when she hit a stop sign!
