He says it's as serious as impaired driving.

The province's Ombudsman released a report on uncontrolled hypoglycemic drivers, underlining someone behind the wheel could pass out if untreated.

Andre Marin says the province is following up to fix a list of flaws he found in the system for monitoring this disease, including to raise awareness, get more detailed medical information from drivers and extend mandatory report requirements for other people in the health community, not just doctors.

Marin says right now, the system is chaotic and there's no way for the Ministry of Transportation to track things.

In a written statement, the Minister of transportation underlined the province is "committed to the safety of all Ontarians" and says some of these recommendations have already been acted on. Others are still in the review process.
