South Simcoe Police Service is very disappointed by the fact that multiple impaired drivers were caught on our roads this long Canada Day weekend. Luckily no one was seriously injured or killed by these drivers who show a complete disregard for public safety and the lives of potential innocent victims who could end up in their path. Don't hesitate to call 911 if you spot a suspected impaired driver.
