During the holiday season, officers conducted 245 RIDE programs. Two drivers were arrested and charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle, two 3-day suspensions were issued and 10 roadside tests were completed.
The Holiday Festive RIDE campaign is a partnership among the North Bay Detachment of the OPP, the Highway Safety Division, and the S.A.V.E Unit (Snow machine, All Terrain Vehicle, Vessels Enforcement).
The OPP will continue RIDE spot checks throughout the year in all detachment areas. All drivers are reminded to drive safe and stay sober.
Any person with information regarding those who may be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol should immediately contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or 911.
