There tends to be an increase in impaired driving during the holiday season. That is why the Windsor Police Service’s Traffic Enforcement Unit has ramped up efforts to prevent impaired driving.
The initiative is called RIDE, which stands for Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere. Last Friday, police in Windsor and Amherstburg checked 100 vehicles, issuing 53 tickets and arresting one driver for impaired driving.
Impaired driving has been on the rise in 2023, according to West Region Ontario Provincial Police. They report a 55 per cent increase in impaired driving charges compared to 2022.
