With the Victoria Day long weekend fast approaching, Halton Regional Police are reminding drivers to have a plan in place before the festivities begin. Police will be stepping up enforcement efforts to catch impaired drivers and RIDE spot checks are planned.
Assign a designated driver, call a cab or plan on public transportation. Being prepared ahead of time is key to avoiding the temptation to get behind the wheel while your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired.
The consequences of impaired driving are severe and can result in licence suspensions, vehicle impoundments, fines and even jail. In addition you are not only putting yourself in danger, but other passengers and motorists as well.
Citizens who suspect a person is driving while impaired are asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
The Halton Regional Police Service is committed to combating impaired driving and keeping our roads safe.
