The Niagara Regional Police Service’s commitment to road safety continues with a R.I.D.E. campaign in St. Catharines.

During the evening of January 27th 2015, Niagara Regional Police officers from the Special Enforcement Unit conducted a R.I.D.E. checkpoint in the City of St. Catharines.

Over the course of the two-hour campaign, officers stopped approximately 250 vehicles.  Of those vehicles, three drivers were required to provide breath samples into an approved screening device.  No arrests were made for alcohol impairment during the campaign.  Police would like to thank those driver’s stopped for their overwhelmingly positive attitude and support for the campaign.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

R.I.D.E. campaigns will be conducted throughout the Region of Niagara all year long. The Niagara Regional Police Service is committed to reducing Impaired Driving Offences through education and the apprehension of offenders with enforcement programs like R.I.D.E

Impaired driving is still the leading cause of Criminal Death in Canada.  Impaired motorists place everyone’s safety at risk by drinking and driving on Ontario roads and highways with thousands of lives lost every year.
