Impaired Charge Following Traffic Stop on Silvercreek

A Northern Ontario man is charged with impaired driving following a traffic stop in Guelph Thursday.

Approximately 6:20 p.m. a traffic stop was conducted on Silvercreek Parkway North after a vehicle was seen leaving a licensed establishment. The officer detected an odour of alcohol on the driver’s breath.

After failing a roadside breath test the driver was arrested and transported to the police station, where further testing confirmed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system.

A 48-year-old Kapuskasing man is charged with impaired driving. His license was immediately suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. He will appear in court May 31.

The Guelph Police Service would like to encourage the public to always consume alcohol and cannabis responsibly. Please don’t drive if you are going to consume alcohol or cannabis, and please ensure that you plan ahead so that you have a safe ride home. Anyone who spots a suspected impaired driver is asked to immediately call 911.
