***************************
On Friday December 11, 2015 South Simcoe Police RIDE teams set up vehicle checks in various locations in Alcona.

One RIDE team, stopped a 31-year-old Innisfil man who had [allegedly] been drinking.

The man was under a court order from a previous impaired driving charge, to only operate a vehicle that is equipped with an ignition interlock device.

The man is required to provide samples of his breath when the device requires him to do so.

The man was operating a friend's vehicle, that was not equipped with this interlock device.

The man was charged with operating a vehicle - not equipped with an ignition interlock and will now see a Provincial Court judge in the new year.

The friend's vehicle is now impounded for seven days.

Police remind everyone, that if you loan out your vehicle to anyone, make sure that they are legally allowed to drive, or you may have your car impounded.

A short time later, another RIDE team in a different location, arrested two drivers one right after the other, for over 80 mgs.

Both of these male drivers from Alcona, one 40 years old and one 53 years old, were given road side tests after officers smelled alcohol coming from them.

The men were taken to the station and provided further breath tests that put them over the limit of 80 mgs.

Each man had his car impounded for seven days, and each was given a 90-day license suspension.

They will both be attending a Criminal Court date before the end of the year to see a judge.

Officers checked 415 vehicles and performed 28 road side tests.

Two of these drivers were in the WARN range and were given three-day license suspensions and had their vehicles impounded.

With the number of alternatives available, drinking and driving is never necessary.

You can use a designated driver, take a cab, walk, stay over or just choose not to drive.

If you drink, don't drive!
