INNISFIL - A 23-year-old Kitchener woman is charged with impaired driving related offences after a traffic stop in Innisfil. On Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019 around 2:00 a.m., a South Simcoe Police Service officer observed a vehicle driving erratically southbound on Highway 400.

The vehicle exited and turned eastbound onto Innisfil Beach Road. The officer conducted a vehicle stop and while speaking to the female driver, detected an odour of alcohol. A roadside screening device test resulted in a fail.

The driver was transported to North Division where further testing resulted in readings of over the legal limit of alcohol.

As a result, a 23-year-old Kitchener woman was charged with operation while impaired, over 80 and novice driver BAC above zero.

Her licence was suspended for 90 days and her vehicle impounded for seven days.

She was released with a December court date.
