A 62 year old Milton man faces a fine after driving around a crossing guard early Wednesday morning in Guelph Ontario.
A Guelph police officer was watching the intersection of Speedvale Avenue East and Stevenson St. North.  While they watched, a vehicle drove around a crossing guard standing in the crosswalk with a stop sign raised.  The intersection had several recent complaints of drivers passing school buses with their lights flashing.
The man is charged under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA) with disobeying a crossing guard.  The offense carries with it a $365 fine and four demerit points
