A Brampton trucker has been taken off the road with a three-month suspension after allegedly driving a loaded rig while under the influence.

Around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday (Sept. 21), the Huronia West OPP say officers were out on patrol when they pulled over a fully loaded transport truck and trailer in the area of George Johnston Rd. in the township of Springwater, approximately 10 kilometres north of Barrie.

While police were interacting with the driver, police say officers noted signs of impairment.

Parvinder Hayer, 37, of Brampton, has been charged with operation while impaired – alcohol and drugs, and operation while impaired – BAC above 80.

The driver was given a 90-day driver’s licence suspension and the vehicle was impounded for a period of seven days.

The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Collingwood on Oct. 25.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.
