Three Drivers Face Alcohol-Related Driving Offences

(CHATSWORTH, ON) - Do the right thing - don't drink and drive! This message is very clear yet some people continue to do the wrong thing by choosing to drink and then drive. This behaviour puts all road users at risk and needs to stop.

Grey County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) remind drivers that there is no safe amount of alcohol consumption when driving. If you plan on drinking - plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi or public transit, or stay overnight.

This past weekend, Grey County OPP arrested and charged three (3) people with alcohol-related driving offences. 

(TOWNSHIP OF GEORGIAN BLUFFS, ON) - On May 6, 2017 at approximately 2:04 a.m., as a result of a R.I.D.E. Program on Hwy. 6 & 21 on the Sunset Strip in the Township of Georgian Bluffs, police arrested and charged 46-year old Jason CARLETON, of South Bruce Peninsula, with impaired driving and over 80 mg.
