OXFORD - Three drivers were charged with drinking and driving related offences over the weekend.
On Saturday, February 27th around 10:10 p.m. Oxford County OPP watched as a vehicle entered onto the 401 from the 403 westbound and then began travelling erratically and swerving across lanes.
When they caught up with the driver the 55 year old man from London was charged with driving while impaired and driving with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in the blood. He was released on a promise to appear and will answer those charged in court at the end of the month.
Later on Saturday night, around 11:35 p.m., the OPP set up a RIDE program on Plank Line in South West Oxford Township. While they were there, a vehicle almost drove right through the check point. After investigating, police charged the 56 year old driver from South West Oxford with driving while impaired and driving with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in the blood. He was released on a promise to appear and will be in court next month.
Just over an hour later on Sunday morning at 12:44 a.m. the OPP had another RIDE check location set up on Highway 2 and Blanford Road in Blandford-Blenheim Township.
