A 22-year-old New Brunswick man has been arrested after an off-duty police officer noticed a tractor-trailer swerving all over Highway 102 near Goffs.

The officer called dispatch just after 3 a.m. Friday to report the driver.

When police pulled the vehicle over, they noticed signs of drug impairment and say the driver failed the Drug Influence Evaluation.

A man from Norton, N.B. will be charged with operation of a conveyance while impaired by drug.

RCMP say impaired driving increases the risk of death and serious injury.

"Always drive sober and call 911 if you believe someone is driving impaired or is otherwise an immediate threat to public safety," Mounties said in a news release. "Include as many details as possible, such as the location, direction of travel, vehicle description and license plate number."
