Within a matter of two days police laid two impaired driving charges in the Matheson area.

Last week a 48-year-old woman from Matheson was pulled over after police noticed her vehicle swerving and was charged with driving under the influence. Police conducted another traffic stop the next day and this time a 44-year-old man from Ottawa was handed a DUI.

Police are reminding drivers that no alcohol is a safe amount while driving and anyone who suspects a driver of being under the influence is asked to call 911 immediately.

The accused were released on the promise to appear in court in Timmins at the start of December.
