Corman Park Police Service (CPPS) had a busy weekend removing impaired drivers from the road. On Friday, July 16, CPPS received multiple 911 calls regarding a vehicle travelling on Highway 14, west of Saskatoon.
Callers reported that the vehicle was in oncoming traffic, in the ditch and hitting multiple pylons in the construction zones. The vehicle came to a stop when a nearby motorist took the keys from the driver.
CPPS determined that the driver was impaired by a drug and arrested them for impaired operation. The driver was tested by a drug recognition expert of Dalmeny Police Service where it was determined that they were impaired by multiple different drugs. They were charged with impaired driving, dangerous driving, possessing a controlled substance and refusal.
Additionally, CPPS partnered with the RCMP and conducted a stop check on Valley Road near Paradise Beach on Saturday afternoon. In total, three drivers were arrested for impaired driving, and two more were suspended for provincial level impaired driving offences. One suspension was due to cannabis use.
On the morning of Sunday, July 18, CPPS conducted a traffic stop on Highway 11 near Warman on a suspected impaired driver. The driver has never had a drivers license and failed a Sotoxa drug test for cannabis. The vehicle was impounded.
