Sergeant Bob’s Holiday Season Safe Driving Reminders

Four brief reminders to help you stay safe on the roads this holiday season while enjoying the company of family and friends.

  • No alcohol or cannabis - recreational or otherwise - while driving. Cannabis legalization will have police checking closely.
  • Expect to see R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) spot checks. Slow carefully and stop for the officers - interior lights on and hands on the wheel in clear view. If you’re not impaired by drugs or alcohol, you’ll be on your way in no time.
  • Make sure your vehicle is ready for demanding weather - winter tires, lights, defroster, wipers, washer fluid, etc. Pre-winter preparation means safer travels when your Christmas schedule becomes hectic.
  • Plan your transportation options NOW. To avoid collisions, criminal charges, financial loss and untold grief, consider your options early: designated driver, taxi, ride sharing services, public transportation, overnight accommodation.

Discuss these tips with new drivers, and remind young people to never get into a car with a driver who appears to be impaired.
