1:30 AM | Wellington County OPP were conducting a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) Check on Highway 6, north of Guelph. At approximately 1:30 a.m. the driver of a white SUV entered the R.I.D.E. check. While speaking with the female driver, officers formed the opinion that she was under the influence of alcohol. A roadside screening test was conducted which resulted in a fail. She was arrested and brought to a local OPP operations centre for further testing. As a result, the 55-year-old Fergus woman was charged with ‘driving with over 80 mgs of alcohol in 100mL of blood.’ A 90-day administrative driver’s licence suspension (ADLS) and seven-day vehicle impoundment was initiated as per statute. She is scheduled to appear in Guelph Court on October 23.

The driver was transported to hospital with minor injuries and the vehicle was towed from the scene. It was raining at the time and road conditions were wet.
