Thanksgiving: “Don’t make it the weekend they’ll never forget”
Toronto Police Service’s presence will be up a notch over the long weekend looking for impaired drivers. “Don’t make it the weekend they’ll never forget. Have fun, drive sober, and arrive alive.” says Sgt. Shawna Coxon of the Toronto Police Services.
Individuals fail to realize while drinking and driving you’re not only putting yourself at risk but the life of innocent individuals as well.
Drivers need to always be aware of there surroundings when driving. Like they say, traffic can change instantly. I don’t think any family out there should deserve tears, just because someone made the wrong decision to drink and drive and cause a serious accident. This is the weekend to be thankful for family and friends,” Constable Robert McDonald shared.
Toronto Police encourage the public to be on the look out for suspiciousness on the roads, and if you do overcome anything to immediately call 9-1-1 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers.
Today, social media has been playing a huge role in society, and we need to come to a conclusion when it comes to posting RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) locations is not the smartest idea. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are useful tools for people to post or tweet locations.
“If it stops one person from making the stupid decision to drink and drive I don’t have a problem with it being shared, the other part that people forget is that spot checks are mobile and can change locations,” stated Constable Robert McDonald, Toronto Police adding, “Toronto Police want everyone to have a safe and sober Thanksgiving because it’s a time to give thanks and be with family. Unfortunately some people do over indulge in both with what they eat and drink putting not only themselves at risk but everyone else on the street.”
