Impaired Driving Charges Up Last Weekend

Wellington OPP had to pull an alarming number of drunk drivers off the road in a span of 15 hours this weekend.
Police say they were arresting drunk drivers at a ridiculous pace starting on Saturday night in Harriston. In total they arrested 6 drunk drivers during a 15 hour period from Saturday night to Sunday morning. In once incident officers were dealing with two offenders at the same time.
OPP say luckily nobody was seriously injured in any of drunk driving cases this weekend.
If you suspect someone is driving while their ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired, either by drug or alcohol, you can call police at 911 to report it.
