BC Driver hauling trailer full of beer is caught driving drunk

A driver of a semi-truck tractor and trailer, hauling beer, was given a 90 day roadside suspension for driving drunk a few weeks ago.

The Mounties were alerted about a white semi-truck with red letters being driven erratically on Highway 1 in Langley at mid-day on March 9.

Police later received a separate report from a commercial truck driver in Abbotsford who spotted a similar semi-truck driving erratically, and whose driver made a “hand gesture” at them while heading east.

An officer later saw the truck swerving into its lane before it was stopped close to No. 3 Road.

The driver, who had a female passenger, took a breathalyzer and failed, earning himself an immediate driving ban. His truck was towed.

“Although this story has an element of humour and irony, this is a reminder that impaired driving is a serious matter,” RCMP Cpl. Rhonda Rempel said in the release.

“We are very fortunate RCMP members located the truck before a serious and possibly fatal incident occurred.”
