Seven weeks of the Festive R.I.D.E. campaign resulted in 112 motorists being arrested for drinking and driving offences – 13 more than last year. Durham Regional police officers conducted R.I.D.E. checks in Ajax, Pickering, Uxbridge, Port Perry, Whitby, Oshawa, and Newcastle last week, and ten people were charged with drinking and driving offences. Over the seven week period 98 motorists registered a WARN on a roadside screening device and had their driver’s licence suspended for three days. Last year, a total of 105 drivers had their licence suspended for registering a WARN. A complete list of those charged with Impaired/Exceed/Refuse will be posted on our website later this week at www.drps.ca under Hot Topics.
