A driver caught speeding was arrested by Weyburn Police on the Thanksgiving long weekend.
A 37-year-old woman was charged with Impaired Driving, which WPS Chief Marlo Pritchard calls a preventable crime.
Weyburn is, however, improving its number of incidences.
“We’ve actually seen a reduction in impaired driving over the past year,” he said. “I attribute that a lot to the cooperation with the media. We’ve had ‘This Ride’s On Us’ program for the past year and a little bit, we’re down probably about 20 percent, but in all fairness, any impaired driving is too many. It’s a totally preventable crime. All people have to do is find another ride home.”

“We’re out in force and continue to be enforcing impaired driving and we encourage people to drive safe, don’t drive impaired by alcohol or a drug,” he added.
