One individual is facing charges after being located impaired driving on an electric scooter.

On May 28, 2024, at 12:13 am, the Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a report of an impaired individual riding an electric scooter around the village of Dundalk in Southgate. The police located the individual and scooter after it had crashed into the mud and the driver was trying to get it back onto the sidewalk. As officers were speaking to the individual they were showing signs of intoxication.

As a result, a 41-year-old from Southgate was charged with the following:

  • Operation while impaired - alcohol and drugs
  • Operation while impaired - blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)
  • Being intoxicated in public place

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Owen Sound on June 13, 2024.

The Grey Bruce OPP want to remind all drivers that impaired driving applies to anything that is powered by anything other than muscular power which would include motor vehicles, electric scooters, electric bicycles, and mopeds.

 


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
