Texting and driving don’t mix, say police

Police pulled over a suspected drunk driver in Tay Township last week, but it turned out she hadn’t had a drop to drink.

She was, however, trying to send a text message while driving.

Southern Georgian Bay OPP report the incident happened on Highway 12, near Rumney Road, around 6:30 p.m. on April 16.

A 45-year-old Brampton resident was charged with careless driving.

Police, in addition to reminding motorists to always focus on the road, credited the concerned citizen who reported this driver with averting a potential tragedy.
