The second week of the Winnipeg police festive checkstop program has turned up 10 more impaired driving charges.

Police stopped 1,860 vehicles and administered 39 roadside breathalyzer tests. Of the drivers stopped, four were issued 72-hour license suspensions.

Police issued 38 traffic-related tickets.

“Taking a cab or a bus, contacting Operation Red Nose or simply identifying a designated driver, are some options to consider,” police said in a release.

During the first week of the program, police stopped 425 vehicles and charged nine people with impaired driving.
