Perth County OPP arrested 4 people after conducting RIDE programs throughout the County this weekend.
Perth OPP were highly visible this weekend as they conducted 8 R.I.D.E programs throughout the county.
Officers were very disappointed with the results as they ended up charging a number of people with impaired driving. Four people were charged with impaired driving at four different RIDE checks in Perth County.
Inspector Rob Scott says they were very disappointed with the results and are upset that people still choose to drink and drive.
"It is disappointing to see that these four people chose to put other members of the community at risk by selfishly drinking and driving. This even after the collective efforts of Perth County OPP, OPP HSD and Stratford Police in conducting Ride over the weekend. We will continue to encourage the reporting of suspected impaired driving. The OPP will continue R.I.D.E. programs throughout the holiday season to stop this crime and keep our communities safe."
The public is encouraged to use one of these options. If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi, stay overnight or take public transit. If you suspect that someone is driving or is about to drive impaired, call 9-1-1 and report it.
