A motorist caught the eye of an RCMP officer Saturday.

At about 7:21 a.m., an officers noticed a Subaru car at Highway 6 and Ricardo Road in Coldstream that appeared to be speeding.

“The car was travelling 56 kilometres over the posted 80-kilometre per hour speed limit when he checked his radar,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

“While our officer was dealing with the driver he noticed an odour of liquor on his breath. The driver was asked to provide two roadside breath samples. They resulted in a fail.”

A 21-year-old Vernon man has been charged with excessive speed and issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and notice of impoundment.

“The North Okanagan Traffic Service are noticing the speeds are starting to increase again with the warm weather,” said Molendyk.

“They wish to remind everyone to slow down, and get to your destination safe without endangering others on the highway.”
