Impaired driving arrest in NOTL during RIDE
One person has been arrested for impaired driving in Niagara on the Lake.
The NRP stopped approximately 200 vehicles over 2 hours during a Friday evening RIDE check that also took place in St. Catharines.
Of those stopped, one driver had a blood alcohol concentration over the legal limit of .08.
In addition to a 90 day driver's licence suspension and 7 day vehicle impoundment, that driver also faces criminal sanctions that could result in a 1 year licence prohibition.
Another driver received a 3 day licence suspension after testing in the "warn range".
Several others were also issued tickets for infractions under the Highway Traffic Act.
The chair of the AODA speaks to Niagara In the Morning about the successes and potential shortcomings as the government attempts to ensure Ontario is accessible to all.
