It looks like drivers are finally getting the message.

Last night (December 22), Niagara Police pulled over 460 drivers in two separate RIDE spot checks in both Fort Erie and Thorold with no impaired driving charges issued at either.

In total, 15 drivers were asked to give a breathalyzer sample to check for alcohol or drugs and all were found to be in the acceptable range.

Niagara Police remain committed to reducing impaired driving offences through education and the apprehension of offenders through enforcement programs like R.I.D.E., saying that impaired driving is still the leading criminal offence causing deaths in Canada.

This initiative has been made possible, in part, as a result of grant funding from the Ministry of the Solicitor General as part of the Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E) program.
