An officer with the South Porcupine OPP Detachment has charged a Timmins driver with Driving While Under Suspension contrary to the Highway Traffic Act stemming from a “not so routine” traffic stop during the late evening hours of Tuesday November 9th, 2010 said an OPP news release.
While en route to his assigned patrol zone, the OPP officer had occasion to stop a 2004 Nissan Altima after it was observed making an “awkward turn” off of Pine Street South in Timmins.
Upon approaching the vehicle, the alert officer could not help but notice that both the 22-year-old male driver and his 21-year-old female passenger were naked, said the police statement.
The chivalrous OPP officer allowed for both occupants to scurry and retrieve their clothing before proceeding any further, said the OPP release
Based on the routine investigative steps taken by the OPP officer, it was determined that there was a driver’s licence suspension in effect in the man’s name.
John Kirwan-Hanson, 22, of Timmins has been served with a Provincial Offences Act summonses requiring him to attend Provincial Court in Timmins on December 23rd, 2010, to answer to the charges laid against him.
The South Porcupine OPP reminds motorists that the obligations to be safe and responsible while behind the wheel rests squarely on the shoulders of the individual driver.
Those motorists who insist on driving while under suspension can rightfully expect a prompt and strict response from OPP officers who diligently patrol area roadways, said the OPP news release.
