Caledon OPP Charges Driver Involved in a Collision with Impaired Operation

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a driver involved in a collision with impaired operation.

On December 5, 2023, just before midnight, officers were dispatched to a two-vehicle collision in the area of Chinguacousy Road, near Mayfield Road. No injuries were reported. During the investigation, grounds were formed that one driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol.

A 49 year old of Caledon was charged with:

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

• Operation while impaired – alcohol

• Failure to stop after accident

• Mischief – destroys or damages property

The driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days, and the vehicle was impounded for seven. The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on December 21, 2023, to answer to the charges.

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.

With the holiday season fast approaching, the need to make those alternate arrangements will increase. In Caledon, HomeJames offers a FREE designated driver service. The program runs from November 17 to December 31, every Friday and Saturday from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. (excluding December 24). More information is available at: https://www.homejames-caledon.ca/
