Woman blows over twice the legal limit, sent to jail facing charge of impaired driving

A 55-year-old Charlottetown woman was charged   with impaired driving Thursday night following a collision on Babineau Avenue.

A spokesman for Charlottetown Police Services said the department received a complaint  at 7:39 p.m. regarding a motor vehicle collision and possible impaired driver on the road that leads past the new Canadian Tire area.

Police went to the scene of the collision and determined the accused, one of vehicle drivers, was impaired.

The accused had a blood alcohol level that was more than twice the legal limit.

She was jailed at the provincial correctional centre and will be appearing in provincial court at a later date.

    Sorry to say but our roads are full of Impaired Drivers, day and night. As long as the Government continues to sell ;iquor in the manner they do, this very serious problem will continue. Ontario just filled their grocery stores with it. Clubs are over serving, people are purchasing liquor at corner outlet stores. Big business and big profit for the Government. Thats one of the problems my freinds. Second one is enforcement, go to Tignish and Souris late at night at club closing time and see how many RCMP cruisers you will find.

      Really ??? What a stupid statement. Seems to me female drivers have had more than their fair share of impaired charges over the decades , not to mention the female ratio who text,talk, speed & tailgate. I think we're on equal ground on this subject.
