On May 27, 2019, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Sudbury Detachment members, the Traffic Incident Management Efficiency (TIME) team, Greater Sudbury Police Service (GSPS), the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) conducted a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) initiative for six hours on Highway 69 in Greater Sudbury, Ontario.
Between 8:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m., law enforcement officers checked the sobriety of 620 drivers.
Three motorists were charged with cannabis readily available.
One motorist was issued a three day driver’s license suspension for registering alcohol in the warn range.
Other offences included no seatbelts, expired registration and no insurance.
The joint RIDE initiative will continue tonight, May 28, at the same location.
