Two Langley women caught driving drunk with children in the car


WATCH (above): Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks speaks about the two women pulled over for driving drunk.

Langley RCMP say they were surprised and disappointed after two different women were ticketed for driving drunk while their children were in the car with them.

In the first incident, a 32-year-old Langley woman was stopped on 88th Avenue at around 5:40 p.m. on Friday for using her cell phone while driving.

When officers approached her, they found an open bottle of wine in the front passenger area and her eight-year-old daughter in the rear seat.

The woman failed a breathalyzer test and was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition.

She was also fined for using her cell phone.

A short time later and in a separate incident, officers were called out to the sight of a collision, where a car got stranded on the center median on 88th Avenue west of Walnut Grove Drive.

A 37-year-old Langley driver had her seven-year-old daughter in the front passenger seat.

After she blew a fail on the breathalyzer test, her car was impounded and she was ticketed for not having any insurance.
