Golf cart driver charged with impaired

One teen was busted for impaired driving after being arrested in a stolen golf cart.

York Regional Police (YRP) responded to a report of two men who appeared to be impaired driving a golf cart on August 14 at about 6:30 a.m. on Wexford Drive near Woodbine Avenue in Georgina.

The two suspects jumped off the golf cart and attempted to flee the scene when officers arrived but were quickly arrested. The 16-year-old driver was charged with impaired driving by drugs, among other offences. Both he and the 18-year-old passenger were charged with theft of a motor vehicle.

YRP reminds motorists that the dangers and consequences of impaired driving apply to any type of vehicle, including boats, off-road vehicles, snowmobiles, e-bikes, golf carts and anything with a motor operated anywhere.

An impaired driving related charge in any vehicle will result in an immediate 90-day driver’s licence suspension, the requirement for an ignition interlock device for at least six months on all vehicles you operate, as well as a mandatory education or treatment program. These consequences are immediate and separate from any outcomes in court.
