Just after 4:00 a.m., West Shore RCMP were called to a single vehicle collision in the 2000 block of Sooke Road in Colwood.
The initial report indicated that a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro struck a pole.
The attending officers were able to locate the uninjured driver and passenger, and a further investigation revealed that the driver, a 22 year-old Saanich man, was impaired by alcohol. He was issued an immediate roadside prohibition.
A little over an hour later, with officers still at the scene of the collision, one RCMP member noted an older pickup truck driving towards them with a bumper dragging along the ground. The officer stopped the vehicle to speak to the driver about the hazard and an investigation revealed that the 28 year-old Victoria man at the wheel was also impaired. He was issued a roadside prohibition as well.
Police are reminding individuals to figure out their transportation plans before consuming alcohol.
