Busy weekend for Mounties

Halifax RCMP say they dealt with 14 separate incidents involving impaired drivers over the weekend, most during police conducted checkpoints.

Halifax RCMP say they dealt with 14 separate incidents involving impaired drivers over the weekend, most during police conducted checkpoints.

“For a weekend, I’d say that’s high,” said Cpl. Scott MacRae. “As a police agency, we’re definitely concerned.”

In one instance, police say a 28-year-old attempted to avoid a checkpoint on Highway 7 and was subsequently stopped for being impaired behind the wheel.

Another incident allegedly saw a 23-year-old male driver hit the concrete median on Highway 101 near Sackville. Police say that driver was also impaired.

Halifax Regional Police made six impaired driving arrests over the weekend — which they call a normal figure.
