Over 110 drivers arrested during Festive RIDE

Over 110 drivers arrested during Festive RIDE

The police also report that they stopped nearly 6,000 vehicles in 112 designated RIDE lanes as part of their RIDE program in Hamilton this holiday season, with six approved roadside tests, resulting in four passes, one warning and one charge of "over 0.8)".

Thirty drivers were busted for impaired driving during the final six weeks of 2017, with 19 of those nabbed at Festive RIDE checkpoints.

He said while the Festive RIDE program is a great initiative to reducing the number of impaired drivers in Thunder Bay, it's "frustrating to see" the increase in numbers despite active efforts.

Between Dec. 1 and January 1, 1,977 vehicles were stopped at checkpoints around the region.

"It's showing with the resources we have we're being successful getting the drivers off the road but the reality is we're missing a lot of other impaired drivers that are out there", acting traffic Sgt. Bill Pollock said. 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. "It's just not a criminal offence right now in our country".

Pollock said the city is lucky to have not had a fatal or serious collision during the holiday season caused by alcohol but said the consequences of drinking and driving are "life changing" even if there isn't a crash.

"The community and the police department made a very active attempt this year in educating the public in regards to impaired driving", Pollock said. Driving within this range impairs one's ability to drive safely.

"We are looking at increase of 10 to 15 percent", Sergeant Pollock said.

Durham Regional police officers conducted RIDE checks in Ajax, Pickering, Uxbridge, Port Perry, Whitby, Oshawa, and Newcastle in week seven and ten people were charged with drinking and driving offences. The R.I.D.E. program netted only 19 of the impaired drivers, the other people charged were discovered during routine patrols.
