Firstly, we’d like to thank the citizens who make the right choice for public safety by driving sober. Due to Covid-19, it appears many people are staying home. That’s a good thing. However, the last few days have been disappointing due to multiple impaired-driving related incidents in our communities. We’re still out there conducting Festive R.I.D.E. Programs day and night as part of our year-round, ongoing efforts to stop impaired drivers. During this holiday season, and always, make better choices to protect your safety and the safety and well-being of innocent motorists and pedestrians.
