OPP LAUNCH FESTIVE RIDE IN DUFFERIN COUNTY

(Melancthon, ON) – Between November 20, 2017 and January 6, 2018, Dufferin OPP will be conducting their Festive Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere initiative through Dufferin County.  Police know that the approaching holiday season brings an increase in the number of impaired drivers on Ontario roadways.  Dufferin OPP encourages everyone to have a plan to get home before they get behind the wheel this holiday season.  OPP members will be vigilant about stopping vehicles and finding drivers that are impaired by any means. The Dufferin OPP will be focusing on the Big Four factors which are Impaired Driving, Distracted Driving, Speeding and Aggressive Driving.  The Dufferin OPP have laid over 32 charges for impaired driving related incidents so far this year.  Our hope is for a safe holiday season.
