Over this past weekend, officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged two drivers with impaired operation.

On April 3, 2022, at approximately 2:15 a.m., Caledon OPP responded to a single vehicle into the ditch in the area of Old School Road and Heart Lake Road in the Town of Caledon. While on scene, officers formed grounds to believe that the driver’s ability were impaired. The driver was arrested and taken to an OPP Detachment where breath tests were conducted.

As a result, Manavjot SAINI, 29, of Caledon, was changed 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 June 13, 2022, to answer to the charge.

On the same day, at approximately 9:01 p.m., Caledon OPP responded to a fail to remain collision on Kingsview Drive in the Town of Caledon. While on scene, the officer suspected that the driver’s abilities were impaired, and asked for a sample of their breath into an Approved Roadside Screening Device. As a result of the investigation, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and taken to an OPP Detachment where further breath tests were conducted.

As a result, Patrick PRICE, 26, of Caledon, 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 June 16, 2022, to answer to the charge.

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

Every year, the OPP responds to thousands of preventable collisions that are attributed to the Big Four (seat belts, distracted driving, speeding, and impaired driving). Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol continue to pose a significant threat on Ontario roads.

If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it.
