Three drivers charged with Over 80 in less than one week is troubling to say the least. One incident also involved excessive speed and another occurred in an area with children walking and cycling home after school. We continue regular enforcement and conduct RIDE programs in our ongoing efforts to keep roads safe. Thank you to the citizens who work with us by calling in suspected impaired drivers. We are all stakeholders in community safety.
