Celebrate the New Year with a Safe Ride Home: Keep Ontario’s Roads Safe – Don’t Drive Impaired

hand on the steering wheel

Ministry of Transportation, December 31, 2013 – Before you get behind the wheel this New Year’s Eve, make a resolution to ring in 2014 safely – stay overnight, ride with a designated driver, take public transit or call a cab.

Ontario is a North American leader in road safety, with some of the toughest impaired driving laws in Canada. Despite these accomplishments, alcohol still contributes to almost one quarter of all fatal collisions on Ontario roads.

Even if your blood alcohol concentration is less than 0.05, you can still be impaired. Small amounts of alcohol, illegal drugs and some prescription and over-the-counter medications can impair your judgement, putting you and others at risk.

Many communities across Ontario offer free public transit on New Year’s Eve, including GO Transit and the TTC in the Toronto area, as well as many municipal transit services including OC Transpo in Ottawa, the London Transit Commission and Greater Sudbury Transit. Operation Red Nose volunteers are also active in 10 communities across Ontario to give you a ride home.

Quick Facts

In 2012, Ontario had the lowest number of impaired driving offence rates in Canada – 47.5 per cent lower than the national average.

Young drivers aged 19 to 21 are over one and a half times more likely to be involved in drinking and driving collisions compared to drivers aged 22 to 40.

Getting your blood alcohol concentration back to zero after drinking can take a long time. Coffee, food or physical exercise will not help you become sober faster.
