CANMORE –  Mounties west of Calgary are crediting concerned drivers with helping them take an impaired driver off the road.

Shortly before noon Monday, Canmore RCMP was called out after a few calls came in describing a semi-truck swerving all over the road on westbound Highway 1.

Officers were suspicious that the driver may have been drinking and gave him a breathalyzer. The driver was over double the legal alcohol limit.

His license has been suspended and he’s been charged with impaired operation of a conveyance.

He’s scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 18.
