(SOUTH HURON, ON) – An officer from the Huron Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment has charged a South Huron resident with Impaired driving offences following a traffic stop in a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) check on July 30th on Morrison Line in the Municipality of South Huron.
On July 30th, at approximately 12:55 a.m. an officer was conducting RIDE checks on Morrison Line at Huron Street East in South Huron when they conducted a check on a southbound motor vehicle.
