File # 2019-7711

On March 29, 2019, North Vancouver Provincial Court staff reported to RCMP that they suspected a woman who had just appeared on an impaired driving charge was impaired when she drove away from the courthouse.

North Vancouver RCMP officers responded quickly and were able to intercept the woman as she arrived at her North Vancouver residence. They conducted an impaired driving investigation, and as a result BC Prosecution Service approved new charges against a 57 year old female resident of North Vancouver. She faces a criminal charge of Impaired Driving in addition to sanctions under the Motor Vehicle Act.

In an era of increased public awareness of the dangers of impaired driving, it’s shocking that someone would make the decision to drive from court impaired by alcohol, said Corporal Jamie Raison, North Vancouver RCMP Traffic Services, The North Van RCMP are committed to keeping the streets safe for our community, and this is a good example of how the community helps us enforce alcohol related driving offences.

The alleged offender will be back in court on September 11.
