23 DRIVERS CHARGED WITH IMPAIRED-RELATED OFFENCES THIS PAST WEEK IN YORK REGION

Posted on Tuesday March 12, 2019

 

In an effort to bring further attention and deterrence to driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, York Regional Police is reporting the names of those people who are charged with impaired-related criminal driving offences. 
 
Twenty-three individuals have been charged criminally with impaired driving by alcohol or drugs, driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 80 mgs or above of alcohol in 100 ml of blood, or refusing to provide a breath/blood sample. The list of these people can be found at this link: https://bit.ly/2TKPxwq

In addition to being charged, these individuals are also bound by a Ministry of Transportation 90-day administrative driver's licence suspension and are prohibited from operating a motor vehicle on a roadway. York Regional Police or Crime Stoppers should be contacted if citizens are aware of those driving in contravention of the suspension. 

York Regional Police thanks members of the community for helping us stop and arrest impaired drivers by calling 9-1-1 under the Safe Roads…Your Call program. We consider these incidents a life-threatening crime in progress and will continue to respond to these calls. So far in 2019, these reports have helped to safely remove impaired drivers from our roads which has led to more than 200 impaired-related criminal charges being laid.

We’re not giving up.
