On Dec 3rd, around 10 pm, the West Shore RCMP received a report of a possible impaired driver swerving and slamming into parked cars on Sooke Rd in Langford.

Two women and a small baby were in the vehicle and witnesses on scene assisted investigators by pointing out the driver.

Subsequent investigation including a breath sample revealed that the woman was above the legal limit. She was issued a 90 day IRP (Immediate Roadside Prohibition) and her vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Fortunately, no one was injured and the Ministry of Children and Families has been notified.

If you are planning on drinking, please do not drive. By finding an alternate way home such as transit, cabs, or a designated driver you can help ensure that you, your passengers, and people sharing the road, all get home safely, says Cst. Matt Baker of the West Shore RCMP

As part of the holiday season Drinking and Driving campaign police across the Capital Region District will be increasing roadblocks and sobriety checks to keep our communities safe for the Christmas season.
