One driver was charged under the Traffic Safety Act for driving too fast for road conditions.

A traffic stop was made in east central Estevan on Thursday that resulted in a 23-year-old Saskatoon man having his driver’s licence suspended for 21 days after providing a sample of his breath into a roadside screening device. His vehicle was also impounded for seven days, as the EPS says this was his second infraction.

Police continue to remind the public of the serious risks of drinking and driving including the implications of getting caught. Strict enforcement of these laws will always be a high priority for the EPS.
