Thompson RCMP were busy over the Nickel Days weekend.
Officers pulled over many vehicles, and arrested five on charges of impaired driving.
Those arrested blew between just over to three times the legal limit when the roadside breathalyser test was administered.
Constable Sandy Deibert spoke to Arctic Radio News, and said that road safety is always a priority for the RCMP.
She added that they are committed to eliminating impaired driving and the tragedies that are all too often associated with it.
Those arrested will be appearing in court in the near future.
