“On October 29, 2023, shortly before 9:00 p.m., Caledon OPP responded to a two-vehicle collision in the intersection of Highway 50 and Old Church Road,” say Police. “Minor injuries were reported. During the course of the investigation, the officer formed grounds that one of the driver's ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol and was subsequently arrested.”

As a result, Ralph Zilli, 57, of Caledon, was charged with:

Operation while impaired - blood alcohol concentration (80 plus);

Driving motor vehicle with liquor readily available.

The charges have not been proven.

“Some drivers continue to take unnecessary chances. Motorists are reminded that no amount of alcohol or drugs in your system is safe when driving. If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi or public transit, or come up with another plan that takes impaired driving out of the picture.

“If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it.”

You can also provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestoppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers, you stay anonymous, and you never have to testify.
