Ten people were charged with impaired driving offences during the third week of the DRPS Festive RIDE campaign.

More than 1,800 vehicles were stopped at checkpoints in Ajax, Pickering Whitby, Oshawa, Scugog and Clarington through the week.

A total of 17 people were given roadside breath tests by officers. In addition to the 10 formally charged, four others were given license suspensions.

“After three weeks, the Festive RIDE team has charged a total of 24 motorists for drinking/drug driving offences,” reads a media release.

“Another 10 motorists have registered a WARN on a roadside screening device and had their driver’s licence suspended for three days.”

In addition to the impaired driving charges laid over the weekend, a total of 95 people were charged under the Highway Traffic Act.

One criminal charge was also laid.

A full list of those charged with impaired driving will be posted this week on the DRPS website.
