Two wrong way drivers don't make a right in Hamilton

Hamilton police had to deal with two separate incidents of cars going the wrong way on the same one-way street this past weekend.

Perhaps inspired by the debate about two-way streets in Hamilton, police had to arrest two drivers going the wrong way on the same one-way street on the weekend.

On June 2 around 2:30 a.m., police stopped an SUV that was going the wrong way on Catherine Street North, by Barton Street.

The driver, a 23-year-old Caledonia man, failed both a roadside breathalyzer test and another at the station.

Then again at 2:30 a.m. on June 3, police came across another car driving the wrong way on the same street, this time near Elgin Street.

Police said the driver appeared drunk, and he was arrested and taken to the station for a breathalyzer.

There, the 30-year-old Hamilton man blew twice the legal limit.

Both men were charged with impaired driving.
