Impaired driving wrong way: Meanwhile, North Division officers reported that on Friday July 29, they responded to a call for an impaired driver in Port Perry. Witnesses had reported a vehicle being driven on the shoulder and into oncoming traffic, unable to maintain the lane.
Officers located the vehicle at Highway 7A and Scugog Street and arrested the male driver for impaired driving (see image below). Upon further investigation it was discovered the male had taken the motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. A 34 year old male from Scugog was charged.
Missing licence plates on speeding car: Officers in Whitby spotted a Mustang zipping by and proceeded to initiate a traffics stop.
We are currently on Victoria Street and this Mustang was stopped for speeding (see image below). Another issue is that the licence plates are not attached to that car. This could lead to plate seizure, tow and hefty fines, said a police tweet.
Speeding and stunt driving: A motorcyclist was caught speeding and doing stunt driving on Lake Ridge Road in Whitby.
The driver also failed to stop for a red light.
The motorcyclist’s licence was suspended and the vehicle was impounded.
DRPS Traffic Services clocked a driver doing 113kmh on Lake Ridge Road and Rossland Road in Whitby.
It’s always amazing to hear the reasons for speed. Slow down and arrive alive, it said in a tweet.
Ride Check: North Division officers conducted a ride spot check in the Township of Scugog last evening. Motorists were reminded to plan ahead and not to drink and drive.
