No Impaired Driving Charges Laid In Huron County During Canada Day Weekend

Huron County | by Fadi Didi  

Police say two speed racers charged, five vehicles stolen, but no impaired drivers during recent long weekend.

No impaired driving charges were laid during the Canada Day long weekend in Huron County.

OPP Constable Jamie Stanley says no drivers were caught over the legal blood alcohol limit between last Friday and Monday.

He tells us 78 drivers were ticketed for speeding, including two who were clocked doing at least 50 kilometres an hour over the posted speed limit.

That resulted in a licence suspension, vehicle towing, and a future date in Goderich court for the two drivers.

Stanley says OPP patrolled a portion of Lake Huron between Port Franks and St. Joseph, where only one ticket was issued.

He reports one vessel failed to have enough life jackets for each of its passengers.

Five vehicle thefts were also reported in Zurich during the holiday weekend, as well as fifteen motor vehicle collisions.

During the Canada Day weekend, Huron OPP responded to nearly 300 calls for service.
