    as sad as it may be to always hear about drunk drivers being caught, it certainly drives home the message that it's a huge problem and people just keep on doing it. I'm glad they get posted in the paper, and I pray that it embarrasses the heck out of them.

    I used to live on kent street a few years and every singly day at least once someone would go wrong way! I wonder if it's ever an option tom make a one way all the way instead of the way it is now!?? The dangerous thing i worry bout most is by goin the wrong way there is no stop signs facing the wrong way driver!

      There are no stop signs for the drunks driving the wrong way down one way streets. Yeah, that is the point of the story...

    Just another quality Charlottetown loser. I'm so happy to see my tax dollars being wasted on these people. Nevermind that healthcare is falling apart, just as long as we keep paying to look after these losers

    I 'm Canadian and live full-time in Phoenix . I will likely retire part of the year in Charlottetown . Last week there were three wrong way drivers that killed seven people in the Phoenix area, including a police officer who had just finished his shift.A suspect in one of the collisions was killed the rest were victims. Drinking and driving is no joke. No one should get that call late at night their loved one is not coming home ever again. Next time you have the proverbial two beers and drive, ask yourself if you can live with the consequences of changing some innocent person's life permanently, including yours.

    If these drunks ever learn what streets are one way they would probably never get caught

    Will we ever see an edition of the Guardian that does not report a Drunk Driver, instead of raising Property Taxes and raising the price of gas just double the fine for Drunk Driving that should give us all a break, except of coarse if your hit by one of these morons.
