RCMP in the Trinity Conception area were busy on Saturday when they removed two impaired drivers from the road.
Bay Roberts RCMP found a truck in a ditch with its engine still running around 3:30 am. The 31-year-old male driver from Fortune was found to be impaired by alcohol when he provided breath samples that were more than twice the legal limit.
Later that day, around 9:30 p.m., Harbour Grace RCMP conducted a traffic stop in Carbonear, where a 53-year-old man from Victoria was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol.
Both men had their driver’s licences suspended, had their vehicles towed and impounded and they were released to attend court in February, 2019.
