The RCMP in Pictou County continue to target impaired drivers as a top priority for policing the county. 


Over the past weekend, three more impaired drivers were taken off the road, and in total, 19 impaired drivers have been arrested and charged since April.

Sgt. Kevin Dunlevy, Operations NCO for the District says that the enforcement of impaired drivers is a top priority for the RCMP in Pictou County.

"Our officers are continuously on the look out for impaired drivers and we often get calls from concerned citizens about drivers that they think may be impaired. And it's not only impaired driving by alcohol that we're targeting - it's also impaired by drugs.  We have several specially trained officers that can detect drug impairment by drivers." 

Sgt. Dunlevy adds that this time of year, there are lots of people on the roads at all hours of the day and night. 

"We urge anyone to call 911 if they suspect an impaired driver.  We have officers on patrol 24 hours a day in the County and we rely on those citizens to make those calls when they see something suspicious."

The RCMP in Pictou County can be reached 24 hours a day at 755-4141, 485-4333 or by dialing 911.
