OPP Reports

Driver Charged with Impaired Driving from Ride Spot Check

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) conducted a RIDE spot check and charged a driver with impaired operation.

On February 21, 2023, officers were conducting a RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) spot check on Forks of the Credit Road, near Dominion Street, in the Town of Caledon. At approximately 9:52 p.m., a vehicle entered the area and was met by officers. During the investigation, grounds were formed that the driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol, resulting in the accused being arrested.

As a result a 24-year-old of Brampton was charged with:

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

The driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days, and the vehicle was impounded for a period of 7 days. The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on March 9, 2023, to answer to the charge.

Although the OPP runs its annual Festive RIDE campaign, RIDE spot checks are conducted throughout the year, 24/7. The OPP remains committed to taking alcohol/drug-impaired drivers off our roads through enforcement and public education. If you know or suspect that a driver is impaired by alcohol or drugs, call 9-1-1. In doing so, you may save a life.
