York Regional police have released a video with a message that officers will be laser-focused on arresting impaired drivers this upcoming Victoria Day long weekend.

They say it shows a 12-year-old boy driving the vehicle for his impaired father in Aurora. And they credit this 911 caller with potentially saving lives.

“The car in front of me has almost caused two accidents,” the caller tells the dispatcher. “I pulled up and there’s a 12-year-old kid driving the car.”

“And I’m like, you can’t be driving a car. and  his dad’s obviously visibly what I think is drunk in the passenger seat,” adds the caller.

The caller says two other cars honked and the father took over the driving and was  swerving and  braking.

The incident was captured on a Police cruiser’s dashcam May 1.

An officer eventually pulled over a white car in a plaza parking lot. The father was charged with impaired driving and child endangerment.
