A pair of women learned earlier this month that drinking and driving can be a costly venture.
In the first incident, Alyssa Major, 31, of Huntsville pleaded guilty in a Bracebridge courtroom to careless driving.
Court heard that on Aug. 6, 2022, police were called to the scene of a single-vehicle collision in Port Sydney. There they found a car that had hit a tree and Major was in the driver’s seat. The police determined that she had consumed alcohol before driving.
Major was sentenced to a $1,000 fine and 12 months with an interlock device in her vehicle.
In the second incident, Yolanda Vargas, 33, of Toronto pled guilty in Bracebridge court to careless driving.
Vargas was pulled over on Sept. 8, 2022, after police observed her weaving and driving slowly on Hwy 60 in Huntsville. It was determined that she had consumed alcohol prior to driving.
She was also sentenced to $1,000 and one year with an interlock device installed in her vehicle.
