Members of the Huronia West Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have arrested and charged an impaired driver after stopping a vehicle for stunt driving.

On Oct. 2, 2022, at approximately 1:26 a.m., police were monitoring traffic in the area of County Road 27 near Beaver Lane when they observed a vehicle travelling at a very high speed rate. Police captured a reading of this vehicle of 131 km/h on their speed measuring device. This area of County Road 27 is a posted 80 km/h zone.

Police conducted a traffic stop and arrested an individual, who was subsequently transported to the Huronia West Detachment for further investigation.

As a result, a 25-year-old Elmvale resident has been charged with:

  • Perform stunt - excessive speed
  • Operation while impaired - blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)

The accused was released and is set to appear on Nov. 1, 2022, at the Ontario Court of Justice in Collingwood. The involved vehicle was impounded for seven days, and the driver was issued a 90-day Administrative Drivers Licence Suspension (ADLS).

The OPP Huronia West Detachment would like to encourage motorists to report potential impaired drivers.
