Two drivers banned after drinking

Central Saanich police nab two drinking drivers within an hour

Central Saanich police nabbed two drinking drivers within an hour during a routine roadblock at the corner of Stelly’s X and East Saanich roads last weekend.

Just before 11 p.m. on July 21, a 22-year-old Central Saanich man admitted to consuming alcohol before driving. He was given a roadside screening test and blew a low reading, but as he still had his new driver status, he was driving contrary to his restrictions. The man was given a 12 hour roadside prohibition and a ticket for driving contrary to his licence.

Just an hour later, at the same roadblock, officers noted the smell of alcohol on a 30-year-old Central Saanich woman. She claimed to not have been drinking, but a roadside screening test indicated a fail twice and she was issued a 30 day vehicle impound and a 90 day driving ban.
