(CENTRAL HURON, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a Howick resident with Impaired Operation – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus after a roadside test was failed early this morning.
At approximately 1:30 a.m. 10Nov a sedan entered into a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) checkpoint that was set up in Clinton on Bayfield Road. While speaking with the driver officers observed an open container of alcohol inside the vehicle. This prompted the officers to conduct a roadside screening test which was failed by the driver.
The driver was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment where he provided two samples of breath to the qualified Intoxilizer Technician; both samples were measured above the legal limit.
