On Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017, just before midnight, a car was stopped at a R.I.D.E. spot check on Barrie Street in Bradford. When the officer spoke to the driver, an odour of alcohol was noted on the man's breath. A Roadside Screening Device test resulted in a WARN, and a three-day licence suspension for a 24-year-old Newmarket man.

South Simcoe Police operate R.I.D.E. spot checks throughout the year. Driving a car with alcohol in your system may result in a suspension, or arrest and a criminal charge. Drivers under the age of 21 are reminded that they may not drive a vehicle with a blood alcohol above zero.
