Members stopped a vehicle on 12th Avenue near 5th Street, and arrested a 27-year-old Estevan woman for driving while impaired. She was transported to the police station, where she provided two samples of breath with results that were double the legal limit. She was lodged in cells until sober and will appear in court in March to answer to the charges. Her vehicle has been impounded for 60 days and her driver’s licence was suspended indefinitely.

In a post on its Twitter feed on Sunday morning, the EPS reported that one of the female drivers had her toddler with her at the time.
