A Kamloops woman was removed from the road early Friday morning (July 23) following an impaired driving stop in which the officer noticed a baby in vehicle.
At about 3:35 a.m., a Kamloops RCMP officer was conducting patrols when he noted a vehicle travelling below the speed limit on Vicars Road in Valleyview.
“After following the vehicle for several minutes, the officer conducted a traffic stop and noted a baby in the backseat,” Const. Crystal Evelyn said in a release.
The officer demanded the woman provide a roadside breath test, but she allegedly refused — an act that carries the same penalty as providing a blood-alcohol sample that registers over the legal limit
The woman was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impound for failure/refusal to provide a breath sample under the Motor Vehicle Act.
