An adult male from LaSalle was issued a three-day driver’s licence suspension just before 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 25th for having a blood-alcohol level of more than 50 mgs while operating a motor vehicle. A LaSalle Police Officer stopped the GMC pickup on Normandy Street and could smell alcohol from within the vehicle. A test was administered to determine the driver’s blood alcohol concentration after which he was issued with the suspension. His 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.
