After a busy weekend for its police officers, Wellington County OPP is reminding the public that drunk driving will not be tolerated.

“We have drawn a line in the sand and will not accept any excuse for driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol in our community,” Insp. Scott Lawson, the detachment commander, states in a news release.

“We will continue to focus our efforts to remove this threat to the safety of all other law-abiding drivers and their families on our roads.”

Over the weekend, eight drivers were charged with impaired driving related charges in Wellington County.

Police are reminding those on the road that if they see a driver suspected of being drunk or high, call 911.
