The officer conducted a traffic stop and while speaking with the male driver determined that his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired. The male was arrested and transported to the Sebringville OPP detachment for further testing.

He is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice, Stratford on July 15, 2019 to answer the charges.

The dangers of driving while impaired are well known and pose a significant risk to public safety. The Perth County OPP is urging everyone to plan ahead and arrange for a designated driver or overnight accommodations to avoid a tragedy.

Should you observe concerning driving behaviour, pull over and dial 9-1-1. Working together, we can ensure that everyone arrives safely at their destinations.
