BRACEBRIDGE — A transport driver who was stopped by police on Hwy. 11 last evening faces impaired charges and his rig was impounded.

Police say that on May 2 at 6 p.m., officers responded to a driving complaint from a member of the public about a tractor-trailer traveling south between Huntsville and Bracebridge.

The caller, say police, reported some worrying driving behaviour and officers were able to stop the vehicle near Cedar Lane on Hwy. 11 south.

The driver of the loaded commercial vehicle, 51-year-old Guy Brouillard, of Saint-Bruno-Guigues, Quebec, was charged with Impaired Operation CC 320.14(1)(a), Over 80 CC 320.14(1)(b) and Dangerous Operation CC 320.13(1).

He is to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Bracebridge July 13, 2021.

His driver’s licence was also suspended and vehicle impounded.

Police credit members of the public with assisting in taking many impaired drivers off of Ontario roads every year.

At 6 p.m. last night police stopped a tractor-trailer driver and charged him with impaired driving.
