BRADFORD — On Wednesday, December 28, South Division officers were conducting a R.I.D.E. program on Dissette Street in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.

Around 1 a.m., a constable stopped a Chevrolet Cavalier in the spot check and spoke with the female driver.

The investigating officer detected alcohol on her breath and required her to complete a roadside screening device test which she failed.

She was arrested for driving while over 80 mgs and taken to the South Division for additional testing.

As a result, a 45-year-old River Drive Park woman will be appearing in Bradford Court on January 12. Her driver's licence has been revoked for 90 days and her vehicle was impounded.

Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) is an enforcement campaign which originally started in 1977 as "Reduce Impaired Driving in Etobicoke".

The program is now a provincial campaign which is lead by the police community and involves spot checks where vehicles are stopped, and drivers checked for impairment. The campaign has a significant public awareness component.
