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.
