PERTH - The holidays weren't very festive for at least 13 people in Perth County. 

Perth OPP have released their statistics from the 2016 Annual Festive R.I.D.E campaign. Police Officers set up 105 checkpoints during the campaign that ran from November 21st to January 7th. Two people were charged in the warn range area and were given three day suspensions while 13 people were charged with impaired driving. 

Inspector Rob Scott says those numbers are still too high. 

"The results of the annual Festive RIDE program demonstrate that impaired driving continues to be a priority in not only Perth County but in other areas of the province as well."

Perth County OPP would like to remind drivers that even though the festive campaign has come to a close, drivers can expect to see regular R.I.D.E checkpoints throughout Perth County - Any time of the day, any day of the week.
