A 37-year-old Gatineau woman is facing impaired driving-related charges after Sûreté du Québec officers spotted a vehicle going westbound in the eastbound lanes of Highway 50.
Police received a tip about the vehicle around 4 a.m., Friday.
Officers then saw the vehicle had stopped in the left shoulder of the highway, just before the La Vérendrye viaduct. The driver then made a U-turn and took off going eastbound.
Police stopped the vehicle soon after and arrested the driver.
She was released on subpoena and is scheduled to return to court at a later date, where she is expected to face charges of impaired driving and refusing to provide a breath sample.
In addition to having her driver's license suspended for 90 days and her vehicle seized for 30 days, police say the suspect has been fined $1,546 and gained four demerit points.
