Police say, during the afternoon/early evening on Monday December 21st 2015, members of the Niagara Regional Police Service, Special Enforcement Unit conducted R.I.D.E. spotchecks in both the City of Niagara Falls and in the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Officers stopped approximately 500 vehicles. Of those stopped, two drivers were administered an Approved Screening Device test for alcohol consumption and found to be fit to operate their vehicles. Two other drivers received Provincial Offences Notices including one to a class G1 driver for not having a class G licensed driver seated beside him.
With the festive season upon us, the Niagara Regional Police Service remains committed to reducing Impaired Driving Offences through education and the apprehension of offenders through enforcement programs like R.I.D.E. Impaired driving is still the leading criminal offence causing deaths in Canada.
This initiative has been made possible, in part, as a result of grant funding from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services as part of the Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E) program.
