The Traffic Management Unit continues to target impaired driving within the City of Greater Sudbury.
R.I.D.E (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) is aimed at reducing impaired driving related injuries, property damage, and death. R.I.D.E. checks are organized in such a fashion as to target high-incident areas.
We strive to educate the public and remind you to think before you drink. The costs associated with this selfish act are astronomical. Some of the effects of drinking and driving are:
- Increased insurance premiums
- Loss of driving privileges
- A criminal record
- Large monetary penalties both to courts and lawyers
- A.D.L.S. suspensions
- Ignition interlock
- Death or injury
2015 RIDE Statistics - Coming Soon
Individuals who see or suspect an impaired driver are urged to call 911.
The Greater Sudbury Police Service will continue the RIDE program throughout the year and officers will remain vigilant in stopping Impaired Drivers.
These actions will continue to act as a deterrent to potential impaired drivers by demonstrating the increased likelihood of apprehension.
This Project has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
The Greater Sudbury Police Service, Action Sudbury and STRIDE (Sudbury Taskforce to Remove Impaired Drivers Everywhere) are proud to support Operation Lookout. Operation Lookout is a Canada-wide, year-round public awareness program that encourages the public and / or businesses to CALL 9-1-1 if they suspect an impaired driver.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police at 674-7511 or Crime Stoppers at 222-TIPS, online at www.sudburycrimestoppers.com or by texting TIPSUD and the information to CRIMES (274637).
