Grenville County Launch Festive R.I.D.E Season

(GRENVILLE COUNTY, ON) - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) works all year to keep Ontario roads safe from impaired drivers and is making it a particular focus during the Festive R.I.D.E (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign which started this week and runs until January 1, 2024.

Locally, the Grenville County Detachment of the OPP will be taking part in this campaign aimed at taking alcohol and drug impaired drivers off our roads.

Police will be highly visible throughout this campaign, and motorists should expect to see R.I.D.E. programs in their communities. Citizens are reminded to do their part during the campaign by never driving after consuming alcohol or drugs, and never letting anyone else drive if you know or suspect that they have consumed alcohol or drugs.

Grenville County Staff Sergeant Jones states: Let's make this holiday season merry and safe for everyone! Remember to celebrate responsibly and plan for a safe ride home.

Your help is requested in assisting with keeping our roads safe. If you suspect a driver is impaired call 911. Your call could save a life!
