Durham police run RIDE check at end of Leafs’ game, four arrested

Four people were charged with impaired driving Wednesday (April 17) night as DRPS officers conducted a RIDE check in the area of the Oshawa GO station.

According to a media release from police, the initiative was timed to coincide with the conclusion of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game.

“Approximately 350 vehicles were stopped between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., resulting in four motorists being charged with impaired driving offences and two more receiving 3-day suspensions,” it reads.

Police credited GO Security for their assistance through the evening.

“The DRPS wants to remind all sports fans that drinking and driving will not be tolerated and further roadway safety initiatives are planned. If you’ve had too much to drink, a one-hour train ride will not sober you up.”
