Despite the cold temperatures police will be turning the heat up on suspected drunk drivers.
Thunder Bay Police Service traffic Sgt. Glen Porter said New Year's Eve is a busy time for police. But they have a lot of officers out to make sure the roads are safe.
Police are asking people to have a designated driver, call a cab, take the bus or stay at a friend's house instead of getting behind the wheel after a few drinks. The alternative is a suspended license, a fine and even jail time.
"It's a very expensive proposition," Porter said.
And lest people think RIDE programs, which Porter said to expect anywhere and everywhere even with the brutal temperatures, are only on city roads the OPP will be out in full force throughout the Thunder Bay area. Spokeswoman Diana Cole said she wants to thank the public in advance for staying safe.
"Make the right decision," she said.
Police ask that if you see someone drinking and driving to call 911 right away.
