Toronto OPP found the vehicle “all over road”. The male driver finally stopped the vehicle in the left lane.
The driver’s vehicle was impounded for seven days and he received a 90-day licence suspension. He also faces impaired driving charges.
Some felt the charges aren’t stiff enough.
“The penalty doesn’t match the offense. It should be much more severe for impaired,” one person wrote on Twitter.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
