Festive RIDE in High Gear for New Year's Eve

Regional | by Jill Young  

Local police forces and OPP will be patrolling and conducting RIDE spot checks tonight.

Local police forces and the OPP are going to be conducting their Festive RIDE program again tonight.

With it being New Year's Eve, police are hoping everyone gets home safely after ringing in 2020.

They want all motorists to enjoy their evening, but to plan ahead.

Stay the night, get a designated driver set up, call a cab - whatever you have to do to not get behind the wheel while impaired by drugs or alcohol.

Last year, almost 60 people were killed in alcohol or drug related collisions on roads patrolled by OPP.
