Two Guelph men are facing impaired driving charges following separate incidents over the weekend.

After failing a roadside breath test, he was arrested and taken to the police station for further tests, which confirmed he had more than the legal amount of alcohol in his system. A 42-year-old Guelph man has been charged with impaired driving.

The second incident happened around 8 p.m. Sunday. Police were called to a parking lot near Gordon Street and Clair Road East for a reported collision.

He failed a roadside test and was taken to police station for additional testing, which confirmed he had more than twice the legal amount of alcohol in his system. As a result, a 34-year-old Guelph man has been charged with impaired driving.

Both drivers havehad their licences suspended for 90 days and their vehicles impounded for seven days.
