Festive RIDE results

The Ottawa Police Service working alongside the Ottawa Insurance Brokers Association and MADD Ottawa held their annual 2021 Festive RIDE Campaign between November 18th, 2021 and January 2nd, 2022 and charged a total of 88 drivers with Impaired driving-related offences, including failing to comply with a demand, having a blood alcohol content of 80 or more milligrams and/or driving while impaired by drugs.

Ottawa Police officers also issued 18 driver’s licence suspensions for 3 days after blowing a “warn” on a roadside (Approved Screening Device).

“Impaired driving is 100% preventable,” said Impaired Countermeasures Sgt Troy Froats, with the Ottawa Police. Police responded to 22 collisions, two of which resulted in serious injury, involving drivers who were found to be over the limit. “We urge drivers to make the right decision every day and drive sober.”

Ottawa Police officers are highly trained to detect impaired drivers and rely on the public to report suspected impaired driving. If you suspect someone is driving impaired, please call 9-1-1.

“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility,” added Sgt. Froats.
