(COUNTY OF WELLINGTON, ON) - Zero acceptance and Zero tolerance, is the message Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are sending to drivers who want to drive while impaired.

"We have drawn a line in the sand and will not accept any excuse for driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol in our community. We will continue to focus our efforts to remove this threat to the safety of all other law-abiding drivers and their families on our roads." Detachment Commander, Inspector Scott Lawson

This weekend concluded with eight drivers being charged with impaired driving related criminal charges. Police rely on Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) checks, calls from the public and officers making their own observations while monitoring traffic.

When a life is lost, jail, fines and drivers licence suspensions will seem inconsequential. If you suspect someone is driving while drunk or high, call 9-1-1.
