Published August 14, 2017 at 4:09 am


Peel police are warning people not to drink and drive following back-to-back traffic incidents in Brampton and Mississauga–one of which involved, of all things, a golf cart.

Peel police Const. Lori Murphy said the first incident, which involved an allegedly impaired driver colliding with some shrubbery, occurred in the Heart Lake Road and Countryside Drive area in Brampton.

The driver was transported to hospital with minor injuries.

Shortly before midnight, police reported that another reportedly impaired driver was arrested. Murphy said the driver, who blew three times over the legal limit, was actually driving a golf cart of the time of the arrest.

He was stopped by officers in the Glen Erin and Meadowvale Town Centre Circle area.

No injuries were reported in connection with the incident.
