THUNDER BAY -- Police are reminding the public once again not to drink and drive.

The Thunder Bay detachment of the OPP received a 9-11 call from a concerned motorist around 1 p.m. Sunday. The call was concerning a vehicle that was driving "seriously out of control" on the Thunder Bay Expressway.

The vehicle was reported to have almost struck several other vehicles before being intercepted by police.

A 55-year-old woman was arrested for impaired driving.

She later provided a breath sample that showed she was driving with four times the legal limit of alcohol.

OPP officials are encouraging the public to call 9-11 to report impaired drivers, and again remind motorists to arrange alternate ways home if you plan on drinking.

Reading the article that you comment on is always a good idea.

For instance you may have noted that police responded to a 911 call regarding an apparent impaired driver.
Get it? Someone called and the cops responded......

About the only clockwork happenings here have been your rather ridiculous postings lately.

You would think at 55 she would have known better or at least been able to handle her booze.

Miz, your comments on this site are the most idiotic of any of the others I've seen on here.

No thanks. I'll let them do their jobs instead of sitting at coffee shops.
