Police nab 30 impaired drivers during holiday season

Police nab 30 impaired drivers during holiday season”

Driving within this range impairs one's ability to drive safely.

"The community and the police department made a very active attempt this year in educating the public in regards to impaired driving", Pollock said.

The Provincial Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) campaign has concluded and Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (O.P.P.) led all OPP jurisdictions in alcohol related driving charges.

Thirty drivers were busted for impaired driving during the final six weeks of 2017, with 19 of those nabbed at Festive RIDE checkpoints. Heading into the final week of the year, police had caught and charged 11 drivers through the RIDE checkpoints.

This figure is the highest in the past half decade and represents likely only the tip of the drunk driving iceberg. Of these drivers, 29 lost their licence for three days; four drivers saw a seven day suspension and one driver received a 30 day licence suspension.

"If you happen to have one of our officers behind you at any given time and you have been drinking and driving, you should expect to get pulled over and you're going to be charged with the offence".

"That is a great accomplishment and speaks well of the officers involved and their diligence towards reducing the number of impaired drivers on the roads of Thunder Bay". A further 14 drivers were issued three-day suspensions for providing a warning on the roadside device and another 18 drivers were found to be driving with suspended licences.

After seven weeks of the Durham Regional Police Festive RIDE campaign, 112 motorists have been arrested for drinking and driving offences - 13 more than previous year.

R.I.D.E officers also found and issued 24 hours suspensions to numerous novice and young drivers.

During the holiday season, Operation Red Nose served to provide safe ways home for many drivers.
