Those of you who think it’s OK to get behind the wheel when you are impaired here’s a heads up: police are waiting.
The Festive Ride program has launched in Norfolk with police doing their first ride check on Queensway in Simcoe in front of their detachment.
These random checkpoints will pop up at all hours of day and night and random locations across the county to ensure people are not driving while drunk or high.
Detachment Commander Joseph Varga was out on the side of the road with fellow officers Thursday afternoon with a message.
This is supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year, and they are just trying to make sure people make it home safely.
He adds that while driving you must not have alcohol or marijuana within reach.
Varga says that any amount of drugs or alcohol is too much when getting behind the wheel and that designated drivers or calling a cab is always the best option.
