An adult female from Windsor was issued a 3-day driver’s licence suspension after registering over 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood on a roadside screening device. On Saturday, November 27th, just after 1:30 a.m. a LaSalle Police Officer stopped a vehicle on Front Road in LaSalle and spoke with the female driver. During their interaction, the officer detected the odour of alcohol and made other observations that led them to believe that the driver had consumed alcohol. A roadside screening test was administered which confirmed the officer’s suspicion, after which a 3-day suspension was issued. 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.
