Members of the Brant County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were conducting enforcement patrols when they observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed on Brant-Oxford Rd at approximately 9:35 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1, 2024.

The officer observed the vehicle’s speed at 134 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone.

The officer conducted a traffic stop with the vehicle. Upon speaking to the driver, the officer gained suspicion that the driver had consumed alcohol. An approved screening device test was administered to determine an approximate Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) for the driver. The test resulted in a fail, and the driver was transported back to the detachment for further testing.

As a result, a 26-year-old individual, Justina HESS-HILL, has been charged with the following offences:

  • Dangerous operation
  • Operation while impaired by alcohol
  • Operation while impaired by alcohol concentration 80 plus
  • Adult novice driver – BAC above zero
  • Stunt driving
  • Speeding 50+ km/h
  • Drive motor vehicle no licence
  • Fail to surrender licence

The accused has been provided a court date of May 16 to answer to the charges.

The Brant OPP remains committed to ensuring the safety of our roads and will continue to take proactive measures to apprehend impaired drivers.
