Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) Grant program to help police services

Published on December 17, 2020

It is a heartbreaking reality that impaired driving continues to be the leading criminal cause of death and injury on Ontario’s roads.

These dangers remain a threat to our communities as we continue to deal with the additional challenge of COVID-19 this holiday season.

That is why, the government is supporting police services across the province to help keep impaired drivers off our roads and highways by investing $4.8 million into road safety initiatives over the next two years. 

This investment is part of the province’s Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere Grant through which 171 police services will receive funding to carry out important year-round road safety initiatives such as education campaigns and roadside spot checks.

We all want a safe and happy holiday season, and there is no reason anyone should be driving a vehicle after they have been drinking.
