Festive RIDE Launch Great Sudbury Police Service
There is No Excuse to Drive Impaired
SUDBURY, ONTARIO ~~~~~ November 27, 2022 (LSNews) The tragic and life altering impact that impaired driving has on families is something that we never want anyone to have to experience.
So far in 2022, we’ve charged 252 drivers in Greater Sudbury with impaired driving offences. There is no excuse for driving impaired.
Today we launched our annual Festive RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) program in partnership with the City of Greater Sudbury, the Ontario Provincial Police, Safe Ride Home Sudbury, MADD Canada, Canadian Blood Services - Northern Ontario and Public Health Sudbury and Districts. Your ongoing dedication and commitment to Community Safety and Well-being is greatly appreciated and we could not do this without all of your support.
Throughout the month of December, GSPS Officers will be holding random RIDE checks throughout Sudbury to ensure drivers are sober.
The ultimate goal of our yearly festive RIDE checks is to ensure our community is safe during the holiday season. Always plan ahead and make sure you have a safe ride home. Don’t let one foolish decision to drive impaired ruin your life or someone else’s.
There are so many options available to community members to get home safely. We urge you to call a cab, use a ride-sharing service, call a friend or family member, plan ahead for a designated driver, use public transit, stay the night or call Safe Ride Home Sudbury.
We urge community members to call 9-1-1 when you see an impaired driver and to provide as much information as possible regarding the make, model and licence plate of the vehicle, as well as, the direction of travel.
Thank you for driving safe and sober. Be prepared to see us Anywhere, Anytime.
