Would not give breath samples for roadside blood-alcohol screening, registration also expired

A Moncton man who was allegedly driving more than 40 km/h over the speed limit has been charged with refusing a breath demand.

On Jan. 21, the RCMP in Cornwall allegedly caught the 35-year-old man driving more than 100 km/h in a 60 km/h zone in a residential part of Cornwall.

The RCMP said the driver showed signs of alcohol consumption and when officers demanded breath samples for a roadside screening he refused.

His registration was also expired at the time.

Refusing to provide a breath sample carries the same penalties as impaired driving.

The RCMP reported it was snowing and visibility was limited at the time.

The driver will appear in provincial court in March.

    Try to get before Judge Douglas. He will give you a $3. fine and a suspended sentence and drop some of the charges.

    Odds are that he will not show up for his court date given that he lives out of province. Should have rules in place that if found guilty that New Brunswick RCMP can collect from him. However, if like case last week where NS woman had charges dropped where blew over limit as judge concluded that RCMP had no basis to demand a breath sample despite person appearing intoxicated and alcohol on her breath, who knows what will be the decision.
