An adult female from Amherstburg was issued a three-day driver’s licence suspension just before 2:00 a.m. on Monday, October 18th for having a blood-alcohol level of more than 50 mgs while operating a motor vehicle. A LaSalle Police Officer stopped the Chrysler 200 on Malden Road for a Highway Traffic Act offence and could smell alcohol from within the vehicle while speaking with the driver. A test was administered to determine the driver’s blood alcohol concentration after which she was issued with the suspension. Her driver’s licence was seized and suspended for three days. There are no fines or points associated.
Anyone issued with this type of suspension must attend Service Ontario, once the suspension is complete, to have their driver’s licence reinstated for a fee of $281.00.
