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.
