Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP kept busy with impaired drivers

For whatever reason, last week was a busy week for RCMP dealing with impaired drivers.

Police arrested nine people for impaired driving  between Feb. 20 and 26, and there were 11, 24-hour suspensions issued, the majority alcohol-related.

“That’s really high,” stated Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

There were also 27 vehicles impounded, though Molendyk believes some of those are in relation to a road check done at the commercial vehicle scales on Highway 97.

“A good number, however, are alcohol-related,” he said.
