NEWS RELEASE

SOUTH SIMCOE POLICE SERVICE

*************************
On Thursday, July 13, 2017, around 10:30 p.m., a South Simcoe Police Service constable was patrolling Holland Street in Bradford. She saw a vehicle with a temporary validation and ran a check on the plate.

When she stopped the car, the driver immediately identified himself as a suspended driver.

A 40-year-old Newmarket man was charged with Drive Under Suspension, No Validation, and Fail To Provide Proof of Insurance. He will appear in court in August.

The South Simcoe Police Service operates a cruiser equipped with an Automated Licence Plate Reader. This device automatically reads nearby licence plates and compares them to a database looking for violations.

If you are suspended, or your vehicle is stolen, uninsured or otherwise out of compliance, the device alerts the operator who can then stop your car and investigate.
