Halifax District RCMP say a motorcyclist's blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit when he was involved in a collision in Enfield.

The crash between the motorcycle and van happened at around 5:30 p.m. Sunday on Highway 2 near Oldham Rd. No one was hurt.

Responding officers noticed signs of impairment and gave the motorcyclist a roadside test.

When Mounties say he failed, he was arrested.

A 46-year-old Wellington man has been charged with impaired driving by alcohol and impaired driving with a blood alcohol concentration that is equal to or exceeds 80 mg %. 

Police say impaired driving increases the risk of death and serious injury. They ask anyone who suspects someone is driving impaired to call 911.

It helps to know:

  • your location
  • a description of the vehicle, including the license plate number, colour, make and model
  • the direction of travel for the vehicle
  • a description of the driver if visible
