RIDE check results: 1977 stops, 2 impaired drivers

RIDE check results: 1977 stops, 2 impaired drivers

"Even for the individual who isn't involved in a crash and has been arrested through this festive season through RIDE, the cost to them financially and to their families in regards to driving suspensions and time tied up in court with criminal charges is going to be very expensive", Pollock said. Driving within this range impairs one's ability to drive safely.

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

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)".

"The number of charges is a direct reflection of our commitment to impaired driving and traffic safety", said Lawson.

Golf is most boring sport to watch, says survey
A huge 70 per cent of those who have watched the sport say that it is boring - and 52 per cent say it is very boring. The most stimulating sport was atheletics with 47% of respondents finding the sport exciting.

This figure is the highest in the past half decade and represents likely only the tip of the drunk driving iceberg. The R.I.D.E. program netted only 19 of the impaired drivers, the other people charged were discovered during routine patrols. The overall statistics show an increase of up to 15% in impaired drivers charged.

After seven weeks of the Durham Regional Police Festive RIDE campaign, 112 motorists have been arrested for drinking and driving offences - 13 more than past year. One investigation found the at-fault driver had only reinstated his driver's licence 50 minutes prior to the collision after receiving a three day suspension for driving under the influence of alcohol.

R.I.D.E officers also found and issued 24 hours suspensions to numerous novice and young drivers. The figures however likely show that despite increased efforts and increased education there are still far too many people choosing to get behind the wheel after drinking.
