While the difficult weather conditions give a hard time to motorists, two drunk drivers were arrested Wednesday morning in Lac-Saint-Jean. One of them was dark in a autopatrouille which was positioned on a roadblock.

Both drivers drunk behind the wheel were arrested by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), in the sector of Saint-Bruno. One of the drivers would not have seen a vehicle patrol of the SQ that was blocking the path and that the lights were lit. No one was injured.

The situation deteriorates on the entire road network in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. The authorities report that the snow and strong wind gusts make the visibility reduced to zero. Several blades of snow covering some roads. The snow could intensify in the next few hours.

Road closures

The small municipality of Saint-Bruno is completely isolated from the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, since the department of Transportation has closed portions of routes 169 and 170 as well as the rank 6. Motorists who must travel between Lac-Saint-Jean and the Saguenay can do this via the route 172.

Since the dinner hour, the circulation is prohibited to heavy goods vehicles between Petit-Saguenay and Saint-Félix-d’otis.
