A 22-year-old Labrador man is accused of being three times over the legal limit when he drove his snowmobile on streets in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

The man was arrested by the RCMP on Wednesday in the area of Mesher St., and was charged with impaired driving. 

He will appear in provincial court at a later date.

The incident has prompted a reminder from police, that drunk driving on a snowmobile carries the same penalties as driving a car or truck while impaired.
