The Owen Sound Police Service (OSPS) has suspended the driver’s licences of two snowmobilers.

The OSPS said that officers conducted a sobriety test at the Ontario of Federation Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) trail in the area of the Bayshore Community Centre.

According to police, both snowmobilers blew above the acceptable level of alcohol consumption. As a result, both individuals received three-day suspensions of their driver’s licences.

The riders needed to make third-party arrangements to remove both their sleds and vehicles.

Police also warned that most OFSC trails in southern Ontario are closed.

All snowmobilers are encouraged to refer to the OFSC website to determine which trails are open for use and to abstain from drinking alcohol while riding.
