The Regional police working out of the Burlington detachment seem to have a brigade of citizens working for them.

On Saturday November 21, 2015 at 10:20 pm, a citizen observed a Ford motor vehicle being driven in an erratic manner in the area of Guelph Line near the intersection of Woodward Avenue. The citizen telephoned the Halton Regional Police Service because they suspected the driver of the vehicle may have been impaired.

Moments later the citizen observed the Ford motor vehicle lose control and strike a small traffic sign on a median at this intersection and then drive away.

The Halton Regional Police Service attended several minutes later and determined that the 35 year old female driver of this vehicle had previously consumed a quantity of alcohol.

The police officers arrested the female motorist and brought her to the 30 Division (Burlington) police station for breath testing. She subsequently refused to provide breath samples for testing.

Kelly Ann Broderick, 35 years old of the City of Burlington, was charged with:

1. Impaired operation of a motor vehicle.
2. Failing to provide breath samples upon demand of a police officer

She will have a court appearance on December 16, 2015 at the Town of Milton. There were no injuries in this incident and minor damage to the motor vehicle.

A citizen once again makes the right call and reports an impaired driver that struck a traffic sign.

The notification of this incident by the citizen was instrumental in the arrest of this impaired driver. On Friday November 20, 2015, a different citizen reported a similar event which resulted in an impaired driving arrest of another person.

The Halton Regional Police works diligently to reduce incidents of impaired driving. The police service is about to begin its annual holiday RIDE campaign to attempt to prevent impaired driving.

Citizens are encouraged to report motorists who are driving in a manner that is a risk to public safety or if it is known that their ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by the consumption of alcohol or drugs.

Citizens can call the emergency line of 911 if the event is in progress or can call the main police number at 905 825-4777. Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637
