Toronto’s finest kicked off their 2010 Holiday R.I.D.E. campaign on November 25 at Humber College. “The best gift this holiday season would be to have no vehicle collisions involving alcohol,” said Traffic Services Staff Sergeant Neil Bullock. Staff Sergeant Bullock was present, along with representatives from: the Toronto Police Service, Durham Regional Police Service, Halton Regional Police Service, Peel Regional Police, South Simcoe Police Service, and the Ontario Provincial Police. All participating police agencies conducted a R.I.D.E. spot−check on Humber College Boulevard, immediately following the kick−off ceremony.
