NEWS RELEASE
YORK REGIONAL POLICE
*************************
In yet another disappointing week, 21 impaired drivers were removed from York Region roads this past week, adding to the more than 100 impaired-related criminal charges laid already this year.

York Regional Police thanks members of the community for helping us stop and arrest impaired drivers by calling 9-1-1. We consider these incidents a life-threatening crime in progress and will continue to respond to these calls.

On Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, shortly before 5 p.m., officers were called to the drive-thru of a restaurant located at 304 Wellington St. East, in the Town of Aurora, for a report of a driver asleep at the wheel.

When officers arrived, they found the vehicle pulled up to the window. The vehicle was running and the driver was asleep. After knocking repeatedly on the window to awake the driver, officers smashed the passenger window to gain access to the car.

Officers woke the driver, who smelled of alcohol. He was placed under arrest and transported to #1 District for a breath test, where he blew more than four times the legal limit.

A list of all the drivers charged with impaired-related criminal driving offences from Jan. 28 to Feb. 4, 2019, is below.

The legal consequences of an impaired driving charge can include roadside vehicle impoundment and automatic driver’s licence suspension, as well as further consequences imposed by the courts, including longer licence suspensions, large fines and in some cases, jail time.

We are reminding drivers that York Regional Police conducts RIDE spot checks year-round and that our officers are always watching for suspected impaired drivers. We also continue to encourage citizens to call 9-1-1 if you spot a suspected impaired driver.

We’re not giving up.
