News RIDE starts today SHARE ON: Rosalind Russell, staff Friday, Nov. 24th, 2017 Photo supplied OPP detachments throughout the listening area will start the Festive “Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere” (RIDE) campaign today. OPP officers and police partners will work around the clock during the campaign, conducting RIDE check stops across East Algoma, North Shore and Manitoulin Island regions. Police are asking the public to call them if they suspect that someone is driving, or about to drive after consuming alcohol or drugs. Police also remind the motoring public to be mindful when approaching a RIDE location. When you see the flashing lights, slow down, proceed with caution, and allow the officers a safe distance from your vehicle. The campaign runs until January 2, 2018.
