A parked car on the side of Highway 11 caught the eye of a police officer.

After pulling over to assist the driver on Wednesday at noon, the provincial police officer determined the woman might be impaired.

The 60-year-old Oro-Medonte woman was charged with impairment by alcohol and drugs, and failing to provide a driver's licence or insurance.

As a result of these charges, the woman's driver's licence has been suspended for 90 days, and vehicle impounded for a period of seven days. Top Stories
