(GODERICH, ON) – A resident of Goderich has a court date coming up in February following a traffic stop and a failed roadside test in Goderich last month.
On December 23, 2021 at approximately 7:53 p.m. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers were conducting a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) checkpoint in Goderich on Cambria Road when they observed some driving that caught their attention.
The driver of a sport utility vehicle approached the RIDE checkpoint, however the driver stopped in the middle of the road, then reversed and then parked on the side of the road prior to getting to the checkpoint. As a result the officers went over to vehicle and checked on the driver.
Upon speaking with the driver the investigating officer noted the driver had consumed some alcohol. As a result a roadside screening test was conducted and the driver registered a fail. Upon doing so the driver was placed under arrest and was transported to the Huron OPP Detachment for further testing. The driver provided two samples of her breath to the Intoxilizer Technician and both samples were found to be above the legal limit.
Kathleen TAYLOR, 55 years of age from Goderich has been charged with Operation While Impaired – Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 80 Plus. She has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for February 7, 2022 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
