Regional | by Fadi Didi  

New rules allow officers to solicit breath sample, regardless of suspicion.

OPP are warning potential impaired drivers -- R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) stops will be set up, en masse.

Provincial police are stressing there is no safe level for drug or alcohol consumption when you are behind the wheel.

New rules also allow officers to solicit a breath sample, without warrant.

Being over the legal limit for alcohol intoxication could mean a 3 month license suspension, and your vehicle being impounded for seven days.
