A 71-year-old Tottenham man won’t be driving for three days after he was stopped for speeding and ended up with a licence suspension.

On Monday, July 16, 2018, around 4 p.m., a South Simcoe Police Service officer was doing traffic enforcement on the 20th Sideroad near 2nd Line when the officer observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed.

A speed measurement of 123 km/h in an 80 km/h zone was obtained.

The officer stopped the vehicle and while speaking with the driver, an odour of alcohol was detected on the driver’s breath.

After roadside testing, the man had his licence suspended for three days. He was also ticketed for speeding.

The same officer continued to monitor traffic in the area and issued two more speeding tickets to drivers caught travelling at 105 km/h and 113 km/h in the same 80 zone.

Drivers are reminded that the South Simcoe Police Service is dedicated to the elimination of impaired driving and speeding on our roads. Each one of our cruisers is equipped with a roadside screening device. Officers are determined to park drivers that ignore posted speed limits and drinking and driving laws.
