One licence suspension over New Year’s

A driver who appeared to try to avoid a RIDE check on the afternoon of New Year’s Eve ended up with a three-day licence suspension

Prince Edward detachment OPP officers were conducting a RIDE check in Consecon, Sunday.
Prince Edward OPP Constable Kim Guthrie reported that at 3:30 p.m., a vehicle appeared to turn around before reaching the RIDE location causing officers to initiate a traffic stop to investigate the vehicle driver further.

Speaking with the driver, the officers suspected he had been consuming alcohol and conducted a roadside alcotest, which registered an ‘Alert’ reading.

This resulted in an automatic three-day licence suspension for a 41-year-old man from the Marmora area. His vehicle was removed from the scene.

No other impaired driving incidents were reported in Prince Edward County over the New Year’s weekend.
