On the same day, shortly before 3:00 p.m., Caledon OPP responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision. The investigation led officers to form grounds that the driver’s ability to operation a motor vehicle to be impaired by alcohol and was arrested.

As a result, a 26-year-old of Kitchener was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

Both accused are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on September 7, 2023, to answer to the charges. Their driver’s licences were suspended for 90 days, and the vehicles impounded for 14.

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

You can also provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestoppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers, you stay anonymous, and you never have to testify.
