It seems calls not to drink and drive continue to fall on some deaf ears, with Barrie police officers having a busy shift overnight arresting four drivers for impaired-related offences.
In a span of just over seven hours, four drivers made the wrong choice and got behind the wheel of their motor vehicle, choosing to drive after they had been consuming alcohol or utilizing drugs, police report. 
Last night, between 7 p.m. and 2:33 a.m., three motor vehicle collisions resulted in the arrest of two males and a female driver after police responded to the scenes and determined that the involved drivers at fault were operating their motor vehicles impaired by either alcohol or drugs.
A fourth driver who was initially observed operating his motor vehicle at a high rate of speed was also arrested and charged with impaired driving.
“This is certainly not the way to end the year when there are so many options available to drivers who should know to plan ahead and make the right choices when it comes to driving,” says Sergeant John Brooks of the Barrie Police Traffic Unit.
