In the third week of their Holiday Checkstop Program the RCMP checked 2863 vehicles across Manitoba during 90 checkstops. 13 people were charged with either impaired driving or driving over .08. The average blood alcohol reading was .205 about two and a half times the legal limit with the highest reading .390 where the driver was operating a snowmobile near Nelson House. 457 other charges were laid under the Highway Traffic Act and approximately 73 warnings were issued.
Five seizures under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act were made during the checkstops in addition to the execution of a Canada wide immigration warrant for a US citizen.
