DRIVER SUSPENDED THREE DAYS FOR DRIVING AFTER DRINKING
(WALKERTON, ON) – Feb. 21, at 9:03 p.m., a South Bruce OPP officer on patrol along Durham Street East in Walkerton stopped a green Nissan and found that the driver had been drinking alcohol. A three-day licence suspension was issued following a warn result at the roadside.
Motorists are reminded that choosing to drive after drinking represents an unacceptable risk to the public safety that can’t be tolerated. Impaired perception, impaired judgement and impaired reaction time put lives at risk. The South Bruce OPP has a zero tolerance for mixing alcohol and driving.
ICE SAFETY MESSAGE RE-ISSUED
(SOUTH BRUCE COUNTY, ON) – The South Bruce OPP is sending another warning about ice safety following a Feb. 22 incident where officers were called to two youth on the ice at the Walkerton Dam. The unusually mild winter season has melted the snow and left us with thin ice, at best. With this in mind, the South Bruce OPP is repeating a warning about the dangers of playing on ice:
Parents - be mindful while children are out of school, as they may venture out on frozen ponds, ditches or area waterways. Children should never play on or near ice-covered bodies of water unless directly supervised by an experienced adult.
Winter weather conditions can be unpredictable. Proper equipment and experience are necessary to have a safe winter season on the ice. For more information on ice safety, visit the Royal Lifesaving Society on-line at http://www.lifesaving.ca/
Parents and caregivers are urged to share this information with their youth.
