On March 10 around 8:00 p.m, a South Simcoe Police officer was conducting traffic enforcement on Holland St. West in Bradford.
The officer noticed that a vehicle’s permit was currently expired.
The vehicle was pulled over, and during the traffic stop the officer detected the smell of alcohol.
A breathalyzer was conducted, and the test resulted in a fail. Two additional tests subsequently conducted at the police station resulted in readings three times over the legal limit.
A 47-year-old Keswick man was charged with impaired care and control and over 80.
The second incident involving readings three times over the legal limit occurred on March 9, just after 5:00 p.m.
A 33-year old Bradford man was arrested in the parking lot of Georgian Downs after a citizen called to report a car crash where a driver smelled of alcohol.
When officers arrived, they found both vehicles with a man still sitting in his driver’s seat and a odour of alcohol.
The man was arrested for impaired care and control and transported to the Innisfil station.
The accused was released with a court date at the end of March.
In both of these instances, the drivers were issued a 90-day license suspension and had their vehicles impounded.
