A Wallaceburg woman was handed a 3-day driving suspension and a speeding charge after being stopped by the OPP.
Police officials say on March 11 around 9:30 p.m., a Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer was conducting RADAR enforcement on St. Clair Road when they allegedly observed a southbound motor vehicle exceeding the posted speed limit of 80 km/hr.
The RADAR registered a speed in excess of 100 km/hr, police say.
The motor vehicle was stopped and the officer found that the driver had allegedly been drinking alcohol.
A roadside test was conducted on the driver who registered an “Alert”, which resulted in an immediate 3-day driving suspension, police say.
The motor vehicle was towed from the scene.
As a result, the female driver, a 40-year-old from Wallaceburg, was also been charged with speeding, contrary to the Highway Traffic Act.
Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is actively monitoring the “Big 4” driving behaviours; impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving, and seatbelt usage.
