Greater Sudbury Police charged four people with various offences this week as part of the force’s annual Festive R.I.D.E. campaign.
In total, police stopped 555 drivers on Dec. 28, at roadside checks stationed at Regent Street near Algonquin Road, Brady Street near Larch Street, and Durham Street near Cedar Street.
As a result of the checks, police issued one 90-day driving license suspension, charged two people with public intoxication, charged one person with failing to produce their driver’s license and charged another with refusing to provide a breath sample.
The Festive R.I.D.E. Program is aimed at reducing property damage, injuries and death caused by impaired driving. R.I.D.E. checks are intended to target high-incident and high-complaint areas.
