The second week of the RCMP’s holiday checkstop program in Manitoba has resulted in 30 people being charged with impaired driving.

Police stopped 2,680 vehicles at 52 checkstops between December 13 and 19.

Of the 30 charged, 22 people were charged with impaired driving by alcohol, three with impaired driving by drugs and five for refusing a breathalyzer.

The highest blood alcohol reading was three people having a 240 mgs% (0.240) — more than three times the legal limit.

There was one traffic-related fatality during the past week in Split Lake.
