When it comes to the law, it’s never a good idea to run from it. On Saturday, July 6th, a traffic stop in Delta was set up by police, and it appears one driver knew he was in trouble.


The driver decided to flee on foot during an impaired investigation. After a brief pursuit on foot, the driver was taken into custody and their car was impounded.

On Sunday night, police pulled over yet another impaired driver and impounded a vehicle once again during a traffic stop in Delta.

Back in December, Canada’s stricter drunk driving laws come into effect. The new rules increased penalties for drunk driving and allow police to enforce mandatory breathalyzer tests.

Under the new rules, maximum penalties for many alcohol-impaired driving offences are being increased to 10 years. The prior maximum was 5 years. Likewise, any driver caught driving under the influence would face a mandatory minimum fine of $2,000.
