Two drivers charged with three times over legal limit

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.
