Festive R.I.D.E. Campaign Continues

The annual Festive R.I.D.E (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) Campaign will continue through January 2nd. The OPP says that they are intent on removing impaired drivers from the roads and to enforcing all the rules of the road. With the approaching holidays, police have some ideas for getting home safely when drinking:
•Have a designated driver. If you plan on traveling to a party, make sure you have a driver who will stay sober and be responsible for taking you home safely.
•Use public transportation. Call a cab or even share one to reduce costs. If you are in a city, utilize public transportation.
•Drop off your keys. If you don’t have a designated driver, give someone your keys so you aren’t tempted to get into the car after drinking.
•Pack a bag. If you plan to consume alcohol, bring an overnight bag so that you are prepared to sleep over until you are sober and alert enough to drive home.
