On Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018, around 2:30 p.m., a South Simcoe Police officer observed a car with no rear lights driving northbound on the 10th Sideroad, located in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury. Police conducted a traffic stop and while speaking to the driver, the officer noted the smell of alcohol coming from the driver's breath.
