Festive Ride Program Going Strong

THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police had an easier night on the annual Festive Ride Program. Warmer temperatures made the job of officers easier, at least temperature wise.

Thunder Bay Police report, “Two drivers were arrested for driving under the influence and one was arrested for possession of a narcotic for the purpose of trafficking”. Getting into the festive mood, police suggest, “Some people were being naughty and not nice”.

There were five drivers who got reminded about seat belts, one novice driver learned about the hours of restriction when it comes night driving and one suspended driver will be asking Santa to try to get his car out of impound.

This year officers on the Festive Ride Program are employing new tactics to avoid the potential for social media, Twitter and Facebook to alert drivers of their locations.

It could be asked why police don’t reverse the process and set up near the parking lots for large seasonal parties, and check drivers leaving the party. Police in other communities do that to great success.

The fact is there is really no excuses today, between taxi-cabs, designated drivers, Operation Red Nose, every driver has the choices to ensure they get themselves and all their fellow party friends home safer.
