Alcohol Related Collisions Have Not Gone Unnoticed by Police
Central Region OPP has responded to numerous deadly collisions over the last week and several of them have been alcohol related. Over the last week members of the Central Region Traffic Unit have attended five serious crashes resulting in three fatalities. Alcohol/Drug consumption played a role in a number of these collisions.
Although Festive RIDE is over for the season the OPP Detachments in Central Region remind everyone traffic safety continues to be the utmost priority for officers.
The OPP reminds motorists to plan ahead when consuming alcohol or drugs. Use a designated driver, cab, public transit, or stay overnight. Planning ahead is critical because any amount of alcohol or drugs can impact your ability to make sound judgements.
