The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary handled 117 calls for service in a 24-hour period up to 4 a.m. this morning and a lot of impaired drivers were nabbed again this weekend.


Sunday afternoon, the RNC received calls from the public concerning a possible Impaired driver on Kenmount Road and a short time later on Topsail Road west.

Around 12:55 p.m., officers located the suspect vehicle and stopped it on Mount Carson Avenue in Mount Pearl. A 30-year-old operator was detained and has been charged with Impaired driving. A check also revealed that the driver had no valid driver's licence, no Insurance and had failed to transfer ownership. He also had over $32,000 in outstanding traffic fines. The accused has been held in custody for court and his vehicle was impounded.

Following a complaint from the general public around 6:20 p.m. Sunday, a 54-year-old man was arrested in the Goulds area of St. John's for impaired driving and failing the breathalyzer. He was released to appear for court at a later date.

    Everyday we read the same thing impaired drivers not just after the clubs close but early in the day,don these people realize that many families are out and about with their kids,doing family things that can't be done weekdays.It is great that we see the RNC are doing a great job but all the same very frustrating when our court system are not doing their job,I don't care who you are, you are getting income from somewhere time to detach their wages for their fines they owe even if they don't work they still get GST/HST
