The Quebec police arrested an advanced drunk snowmobile driver on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday on Grande Allee.

At approximately 4:20 am, the Quebec City Police Service (SPVQ) received a call stating that a driver of the snow tractor was sleeping on Grande Allée, at the intersection of rue des Érables.

“When the police arrived a few minutes later, the man was still sleeping behind the wheel and was later arrested for impaired driving,” said SPVQ spokesperson Cyndi Paré.

The 46-year-old man, employed by a private snow-clearing machine, was ordered to provide a breath sample. He was taken to the police station, where he recorded a blood alcohol level of about 230 mg per 100 ml of blood, almost triple the allowable limit.

The snow removal tractor was seized and his license was suspended. He was released by promise to appear.
