Festive RIDE program kicks-off this weekend

Posted November 26, 2019

Police in possession of an approved screening device are heading into the seasonal RIDE campaign this weekend with new powers to demand a breath sample without having reasonable suspicion that the driver has alcohol in their body.

The new law was phased in last year, and police can make the demand during any traffic stop.

The OPP has also acquired approved drug screening equipment which can detect cannabis and cocaine in a driver's saliva. The device can be used to enforce the provincial zero tolerance sanctions that now apply to young, novice and commercial drivers who are suspected of having the presence of drugs in their body.
