WOODSTOCK/OXFORD - A total of 35 tickets were issued during the most recent Operation Zero campaign.
It's a joint initiative between the Woodstock Police Service and the Oxford County OPP. The two-day blitz targeted impaired drivers this time around and they held several R.I.D.E. programs in Woodstock and Oxford. Officers administered 58 roadside tests and one of them resulted in a three-day license suspension. They also issued four warnings before the end of the campaign.
With the holiday season fast approaching, both police services would like to remind everyone to celebrate responsibly. Please make sure you arrange a safe ride home or plan to stay the night if you decide to consume alcohol or cannabis at a party.
If you spot an impaired driver out on the roads, you should take note of the vehicle, the license plate and direction of travel and report it to police. If you are driving yourself, please make sure you pull over or use hands free calling through your vehicle to make sure you're not distracted driving.
