South Simcoe Police Service officers charged four impaired drivers this weekend – two on Friday night and the two above on Sunday. Impaired driving is the leading criminal cause of death and injury in Canada. We’d like to remind motorists that driving the morning after can be just as dangerous as driving the night of the party because you may still be impaired. The only thing that will lower your blood alcohol content and sober you up is time.
