White River Woman Charged Under New Impaired Driving Laws

A White River woman's facing charges under Canada's new impaired driving rules.

Superior East Ontario Provincial Police say officers stopped a pickup truck driving erratically in White River Tuesday night - the same day the stricter anti-impaired driving rules took effect - with the officers detecting the odour of alcohol on the driver's breath.

Follow-up investigation led to charges of operation while impaired by alcohol and operation while impaired (blood alcohol concentration 80 plus) - the 47-year-old woman also had her driver's licence suspended and the vehicle was towed and impounded.

She's set to appear in Wawa's Ontario Court of Justice in February.
