Repeat drunk drivers: Quebec aiming to crack down

QUEBEC - The Quebec government is moving to crack down on repeat drunk-driving offenders.

Justice Minister Bertrand St-Arnaud says an offender's vehicle will be seized after each infraction and confiscated for good upon a third offence.

A repeat offender could also be tagged as a "dangerous delinquent."

St-Arnaud told a news conference in Quebec City today that drunk driving is a social scourge that the government is determined to attack on various fronts.

He says that will include a clear directive to Crown prosecutors to be tougher at every step in legal proceedings involving drivers who have consumed alcohol or drugs.

Today's announcement comes just a few days after two fatal hit-and-run deaths that allegedly involved impaired driving.
