OPP NAB MORE IMPAIRED DRIVERS DURING WEEK #2 OF FESTIVE R.I.D.E. CAMPAIGN
(ORILLIA, ON) –Drivers continued to ignore warnings during the second week of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Festive R.I.D.E. campaign and according to the OPP, motorists who chose driving impaired over making simple alternate arrangements to get home should not be surprised about getting caught.
As of Sunday, December 9, 2012 (16 days into the campaign), the OPP have charged 284 drivers with alcohol related criminal driving offences and issued 275 Administrative Driver’s Licence Suspensions (ADLS) for registering a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) between .05 and .08 (known as the Warn Range).
The OPP is conducting its annual Festive R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign from November 24, 2012 to January 2, 2013 and are once again reminding the public that their strong presence and high visibility will persist right through to the new year.
Impaired driving continues to be a major factor in deaths on Ontario’s roads and the OPP remains committed to reducing the tragic loss of life by removing impaired drivers from our roads.
