The Niagara Police set up RIDE spot checks in both Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls last night (December 15) that saw over 600 cars get pulled over.

In the end, 23 drivers had to submit to a breathalyzer and from those, just three blew an “alert,” which results in an automatic three-day licence suspension.

As well as that, police said “several” drivers were caught from various Highway Act offences.

The Niagara Police  says they remain “committed to reducing impaired driving offences through education and the apprehension of offenders through enforcement programs like RIDE.”

Impaired driving remains the leading criminal offence causing death in Canada.
