Impaired Driving Arrest

Speeding Leads to Impaired Charge

A Guelph woman was charged with impaired driving Monday evening after being stopped for speeding.

Approximately 9:30 p.m. a member of the Guelph Police Service Traffic Unit was conducting speed enforcement on Gordon Street near Kortright Road when he clocked a Mazda driving 82 km/h in the 50 km/h zone.

The vehicle was stopped and while speaking to the driver the officer smelled an odour of alcohol on her breath. After failing a roadside breath test she was arrested and transported to the police station, where further testing confirmed she had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in her system.
