Traffic safety continues to be a priority for the Toronto Police Service.
On Friday, December 11, 2015, from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., Traffic Services performed a R.I.D.E. spot check at Kingston Road and Danforth Road.
During this spot check, drivers were identified as operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol. The results of the spot check are noted below:
Officers assigned: 7
Vehicles stopped: approximately 1,250
Screening tests performed: 2
Screening test - PASS: 1
Screening test - WARN: 1
Screening test - FAIL: 0
While far fewer people are choosing to drink and drive, more are getting into their cars in the morning after consuming quantities of alcohol the night before. Many do this without realizing they could still be impaired due to their blood-alcohol level. You cannot speed up the process of getting sober, not matter what you do, so a cold shower, an open window or an energy drink will not help. Only time will.
The Toronto Police Service is encouraging citizens to assist police in the war against impaired driving by calling 9−1−1 if they believe another driver may be impaired.
Another daytime R.I.D.E spot check will occur during the week of December 14-18, 2015. For further information, contact Constable Clint Stibbe at 416-808-1920.
