Impaired Driving Arrest

Impaired Guelph Driver Hands Over Bank Card

A Guelph man faces impaired driving charges following a traffic stop Monday night.

Approximately 10:45 p.m. a member of the Guelph Police Service Traffic Unit was patrolling near Paisley Road and Hanlon Expressway when she observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed and weaving within its lane. A query of the licence plate revealed the vehicle’s owner is currently a suspended driver for unpaid fines.

A traffic stop was conducted and the driver was observed to be showing signs of impairment, including an odour of alcohol on his breath and slurred speech. When asked for his licence he handed over a bank card.

He was arrested and transported to the police station, where tests revealed he had nearly three times the legal amount of alcohol in his system.

A 31-year-old Guelph man is charged with impaired driving, driving while suspended and driving with open alcohol. His license was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was seized for seven days. He will appear in court February 23.
