Thunder Bay Police Report 175 Drivers Charged with Impaired in 2017

Police RIDE checkpoint impaired driving

Yet there were thirty drivers arrested and charged since the start of this year's enhanced enforcement.

The police also report that they stopped nearly 6,000 vehicles in 112 designated RIDE lanes as part of their RIDE program in Hamilton this holiday season, with six approved roadside tests, resulting in four passes, one warning and one charge of "over 0.8)".

The Thunder Bay Police Service says it had its most successful season for RIDE traffic checks - Reduce Impaired Drivers Everywhere - in recent history.

These numbers cover the period between December 23 and January 2.

"One investigation found the at-fault driver had only reinstated his driver's licence 50 minutes prior to the collision after receiving a three-day suspension for driving under the influence of alcohol", police stated in a press release.

Golf voted dullest sport
The most stimulating sport was atheletics with 47% of respondents finding the sport exciting. But golf was considered to be the most boring.

"You are impaired at that rate", Pollock said, noting some European countries have set the threshold to be charged at 0.05.

The 19 drivers charged through the RIDE program was the highest in the past five years, surpassing the 18 apprehended in 2014.

Pollock said the city is lucky to have not had a fatal or serious collision during the holiday season caused by alcohol but said the consequences of drinking and driving are "life changing" even if there isn't a crash. Thunder Bay Police say that despite their best efforts to again attempt to educate the public, "It appears that message is not being heard". Driving within this range impairs one's ability to drive safely. "Officers are aware of what it looks like to spot an impaired driver", Pollock said.

In 2017 a total of 175 people were charged with impaired driving offences in the city and with the legalization of marijuana soon to come, Pollock said officers will be undergoing more training.

"I'm incredibly proud of the hard work all of the officers put in during the course of this campaign", Detachment Commander Scott Lawson, "our Festive R.I.D.E. team members dedicated evenings and weekends to ensure safety on our roads".
