Dont Use Social Media to Warn Drivers of New Years RIDE Check Points

Every New Year’s Eve revellers venture to local restaurants, bars, and private parties to herald in the coming New Year. Each year, Durham Regional Police setup R.I.D.E Checkpoints to ensure the public’s safety and get impaired drivers off the streets of Durham Region.

Although it sounds pretty simple, there are people that feel that it is their ‘civic duty’ to warn impaired drivers of R.I.D.E. checkpoints and use social media to do it. Drunks turn to social media to drive home safe, rather than calling a taxi or a designated driver. Revealing checkpoints locations is not considered illegal, however you are not doing the streets any justice and not making them any safer.

Rather than tweeting checkpoint locations, why not post the phone numbers of designated driver companies, taxi companies, or bus schedules. Each year residents are asked to leave their vehicles home and use an alternate form of transit. A great alternative is Durham Region Transit. It is FREE and an initiative being sponsored by Ontario Power Generation and the Durham Regional Services Board. All conventional DRT routes operating after 8 p.m. on Dec. 31st will be free and service will be extended on those routes until 2 a.m. on January 1, 2014. For more information and to confirm the routes available, please visit here.

Here are numbers to designated driver companies operating in the area. It is recommended to book your driver before you go out, as times book up fast and drivers are normally pre-booked.  We have included the numbers of all the known taxi companies operating in Ajax and Pickering. Wait times might be higher on New Year’s Eve due to the higher demand for taxis. Please be patient.
