Driver Charged After Cops Say He was 75km Over The Limit

High Miler Among Those Charged Sunday

The South Simcoe Police Traffic Unit had a busy Sunday, with a few interesting tickets written up.

The first came just a few minutes into Sunday, as an officer says a vehicle was caught driving through town with its high beams on, around 12:15am. The vehicle was pulled over on Innisfil Beach Rd., while the 25-year-old Innisfil man behind the wheel is said to have registered a Caution on a breathalyser. His licence was suspended for three days as a result.

Later in the afternoon, an officer says their radar gun registered a speed of 125km/h in a 50 zone. It happened on Canal Rd. around 5:30, and the vehicle was pulled over. A 24-year-old from Etobicoke was charged with not only Speeding and Stunt Driving, but police say he had a G1 licence only, and was unaccopanied.

Concerned citizens started calling South Simcoe Police around 10:30 Sunday night with reports of an erratic driver on County Road 4. The vehicle was tracked down and the 25-year-old Barrie man behind the wheel allegedly failed his roadside sobriety test. His licence was suspended for 90 days, his vehicle impounded for seven.
