 On March 31, 2024 from approximately 11:00 pm to April 1 at 11:00 pm, Lake Country RCMP officers made proactive patrols and conducted sobriety check stops removing a total of five impaired drivers from the roads.

During a check stop on Glenmore Rd., approximately 60 vehicles were checked and three impaired drivers along with their vehicles were removed from our streets. Of those three impaired drivers, two were issued 3-day driving prohibitions including their vehicles being impounded for the same time period. The other driver was issued a 90-day driving prohibition which comes with a mandatory 30-day impound.

Proactive patrols throughout the community located an additional two drivers that were found to be impaired. One was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and the other a 3-day.

Lake Country RCMP officers have been exceptionally active at targeting impaired drivers in the community. In the last year, more than 80 drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol were removed from our roads as officers continue to keep our roads and community safe. I could not be more proud of the work done by our officers
