On June 6 at 9:30 p.m. RCMP stopped a vehicle on Main Street in Sicamous for a sobriety check. The driver, a 47-year-old woman from Calgary displayed signs of impairment. She was given two roadside breath tests and failed. Failing the tests resulted in a 30-day impound of the woman’s vehicle and a 90-day driving prohibition.
