For the second year in a row, the city’s police force has reported no fatal collisions for the month of December.
Officials with the Thunder Bay Police Service reported last year that they had, for the first time in recent memory, gone through a December with no reports of fatal collisions on local roadway. This year the force was able to make a similar announcement regarding December 2013.
Twenty-one drivers were charged with impaired driving, or failing to provide samples of breath during the month of December. Again this year, just about half of that number, twelve, was as the result of the annual RIDE program.
Police say those statistics are consistent with RIDE program results from previous years.
