The second week of the 2017/18 Holiday Checkstop Program in Manitoba is in the books.
Numbers from week 2, from December 11 to 17th, show 23 people were charged with impaired driving offences — 22 of which alcohol-related and 1 drug-related.
The highest blood-alcohol reading was almost 3 times the legal limit.
Ten alcohol-related roadside suspensions were handed out along with 4 other Criminal Code Driving offences.
476 charges under the Highway Traffic Act were laid, along with 140 warnings for various offences. Most of the charges were speeding and seatbelt infractions.
Just over 23-hundred vehicles were checked across Manitoba during the second week, which is a small decrease from the first week, when 2-thousand 680 vehicles were checked.
For the second consecutive week, there were no traffic-related fatalities.
