Impaired driving remains one of the biggest dangers on the 4,100 kilometres of urban and rural roads that help York Region residents get to where they live, work and play.

Despite numerous tragedies, the number of people charged with impaired driving, whether by alcohol or drugs, continues to rise annually. That's why it continues to be a key road safety enforcement priority for York Regional Police.

Together with our partners and our community, we are not giving up in our fight against impaired driving.

We focus our efforts on strategic enforcement, such as year-round RIDE initiatives, public education through our many media and social media campaigns and ongoing community programs, such as the Safe Roads...Your Call program, which encourages residents to call 9-1-1 if they spot an impaired driver.
