Police were busy with impaired drivers over the long weekend in Alberta.
Alberta RCMP said Wednesday that from May 21-24, they removed 121 impaired drivers from provincial roadways.
Sixty-one motorists received Immediate Roadside Sanction (IRS) fails for driving with blood alcohol concentrations of .08 or greater. It was the second or even third fail occurrence for six of these individuals.
Twenty-five drivers had blood alcohol concentrations of 0.05 to 0.079.
As well, 23 motorists holding GDL licences were issued suspensions and vehicle seizures due to having blood alcohol concentrations greater than zero.
Albertans made several 911 calls to the RCMP to report possible impaired driving. Nine of these calls resulted in the drivers being processed for impaired driving. One call resulted in officers calling for an ambulance, as the motorist was not impaired but rather having a medical episode.
In Nordegg, a GDL driver who had been drinking was caught at a check stop. The driver was received a 30-day licence suspension and seven-day vehicle seizure.
In Brooks, an impaired driver was reported to be travelling the wrong way on the Trans-Canada Highway. RCMP were able to locate the vehicle before anything tragic occurred.
