Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged two drivers with impaired driving on Super Bowl Sunday.

On February 13, 2022, at approximately 5:12 a.m., officers responded to a vehicle into the ditch in the area of Highway 10 and Beech Grove Side Road in Caledon Village. No injuries were reported. Since the officer suspected that the driver’s abilities were impaired, they were asked to provide a sample of their breath into an Approved Roadside Screening Device. As a result, the driver was arrested for impaired driving and transported to an OPP Detachment where further breath tests were conducted.

Arveen GOSAL, 19, of Shelburne was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (B.A.C.) over 80 mg

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on May 26, 2022, to answer to the charge.

Later that same day at approximately 6:15 p.m., officers responded to a second vehicle into the ditch in the area of Humber Station Road and Healey Road. No injuries were sustained. Due to observations made by the officer, the driver was asked to provide a sample of their breath into an Approved Roadside Screening Device. Consequently, the driver was arrested for impaired driving and transported to a nearby police station where further breath tests were conducted.

Edoardo TANEL, 54, of Woodbridge was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (B.A.C.) over 80 mg

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on April 28, 2022, to answer to the charges.

Both vehicles were impounded for seven days and the driver’s licences were suspended for a period of 90 days.

A leading cause of collisions that occur during the winter months is poor driving, not poor driving conditions.  Drivers are reminded that no amount of alcohol or drugs in your system is safe when driving. If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi or public transit, or come up with another plan that takes impaired driving out of the picture.
