Caledon OPP Charges Two Drivers with Impaired in One Evening

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged two drivers with impaired operation in one evening.

On September 4, 2023, shortly after 10:00 p.m., an officer on patrol on King Street in Bolton stopped a vehicle for Highway Traffic Act violations. During the investigation, grounds were formed that the driver was operating a motor vehicle while their ability was impaired by alcohol.

As a result a 24 year old of Caledon was charged with:

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

• Drive vehicle with cannabis readily available

• Driver fail to properly wear seatbelt

Shortly thereafter, at approximately midnight, Caledon OPP received two traffic complaints from concerned citizens over the manner a vehicle was being operated on Airport Road. Officers located the vehicle and stopped it. The investigation led officers to arrest the driver since grounds were formed that the vehicle was being operated while their ability was impaired by alcohol.

As a result a 50 year old of Etobicoke was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – alcohol

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

Both accused are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on September 21, 2023, to answer to the charges. Their driver’s licences were suspended for 90 days, and the vehicles impounded for 14.

Caledon OPP would like to take this opportunity to thank the member of the public who placed the call to police. The report may have saved a life. 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.peelcrimestroppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers, you stay anonymous, and you never have to testify.
