Over a 7 day period culminating in the Canada Day long weekend, the York Regional Police removed 26 impaired drivers from our roadways and charged 126 distracted drivers.
According to policy, twenty-six drivers were charged with impaired-related driving offences between Monday, June 26 2017, and Monday, July 3, 2017. Twenty-three drivers were charged for being impaired by alcohol, two drivers were charged with being impaired by drugs and one driver was charged with failing to provide a breath sample.
