Zero charges after 350 cars stopped by R.I.D.E. program on Saturday night in Niagara Falls and Lincoln

Niagara Region motorists are getting the message cloud and clear: Do not drink and drive.

Two separate R.I.D.E. spots checks set up in Lincoln and Niagara Falls by Niagara Police stopped over 350 cars but yielded no impaired charges on November 6.

In total, 30 drivers were asked to give breathalyzers to test alcohol or drugs levels and all were within the acceptable limit.

The police maintain that they “remain committed to reducing impaired driving offences through education and the apprehension of offenders through enforcement programs like R.I.D.E. Impaired driving is still the leading criminal offence causing deaths in Canada.”

This initiative is 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.
