Members of the Southern Georgian Bay OPP continued to crack down on drinking and driving this past weekend by setting up 23 R.I.D.E. checks.
The vehicle check stops were set up across Tiny, Tay and Georgian Bay Townships and the Town of Penetanguishene resulting in over 1,148 drivers being checked for drinking and driving offences.
On Dec. 8, a 66-year-old Midland man lost his driver’s licence for three days after registering a “warn” on the roadside screening device at a R.I.D.E. in Penetanguishene. A “warn” is issued if someone’s blood alcohol level registers between .05 and .08.
