RCMP say a Bedford woman's blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit when she was pulled over Friday afternoon.

Mounties received several calls about an erratic driver in the Hubbards area at around 2:30 p.m.

Soon after, another report came in about the same car on Hammonds Plains Rd. 

"The car was reported to be all over the road, driving slow and stopping in the middle of intersections," RCMP said in a news release.

Officers tracked down the vehicle at a business in Hammonds Plains and say the driver showed signs of impairment.

She was given a breath test at the Tantallon RCMP Detachment.

The 36-year-old is facing charges of impaired operation of a conveyance and operating a conveyance while over 80 mg%. She's scheduled to be in Halifax Provincial Court on October 7.
