Halifax Regional Police charged 33 people with impaired driving last month, and handed out seven 24-hour suspensions.

Police say of the 33 people charged, 29 were men and four were women, all ranging in the age from 17 to 62.

Fifteen of the charges laid came during police traffic stops and checkpoints, eight through accidents and 10 by citizens calling in.

Police also note one of the drivers charged with impaired driving had a blood alcohol level of 310 mg, which is almost four times over the legal limit. Police say blood alcohol concentrations this high requires the person be examined by medical personnel for fear of death.
