During a RIDE check on Municipal Road 80 in McCrea Heights April 17, Greater Sudbury Police stopped a vehicle, and noticed there were open containers of liquor inside the vehicle.

The driver and passengers were issued a provincial offence notice under the Liquor Licence Act for having liquor in an open container in other than licenced premise. The offence carries a $125 fine.


Police checked 395 drivers on Municipal Road 80 and the corner of Notre Dame at Cote Avenue in Hanmer during the RIDE check.

Other than the Liquor Licence Act violations, the police also issued one three-day driver's licence suspension, three document infraction notices and administered seven alcohol screening tests and one field sobriety test.
