OPP LAUNCH 2011 FESTIVE R.I.D.E. CAMPAIGN

 (AURORA, ON) – Impaired driving is a public safety problem year-round but sadly the threat only worsens during the holidays according to the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

The OPP is conducting its annual Festive R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign from November 25, 2011 to January 1, 2012 and is reminding motorists that province-wide R.I.D.E. stops will be highly-visible throughout the holiday season.

During last year’s R.I.D.E. campaign (2010-2011), the OPP laid 308 impaired driving charges and issued 903 Warn Range and Administrative Driver’s License Suspensions.

Impaired driving continues to be the leading cause of criminal death in Canada.  As of mid-November (2011), 40 people have died in alcohol-related collisions on OPP-patrolled roads and highways compared to 75 this same time last year (2010).  While the number is down significantly this year, even one alcohol-related death is one too many and motorists need to be more proactive in eliminating these preventable fatalities altogether according to the OPP.

“Year after year, our Festive R.I.D.E. campaign proves effective in taking impaired drivers off our roads.  If you’re drinking, come up with a plan that involves not drivingsuch as taking a cab, a bus or have a designated driver.  Don’t drink and drive, don’t let those who are drinking drive and be sure to report those who do”. – C/Supt. Don Bell, Commander, OPP Highway Safety Division.

Thinking of refusing a breath test?

Think again.  Motorists who refuse a breath test will be charged with a criminal code offence and immediately have their driver’s license suspended for 90 days.

Think you can have a few drinks and be sure you’ll blow under the legal limit?

Think again.  Drivers who blow in the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) “Warn Range” of .05 to .08 pose a danger to themselves and other road users.  If caught driving in the warn range, you will receive an immediate 3-day driver’s licence suspension at the roadside and the suspension period increases with subsequent offences to 7 then 30 days.

Think your family and friends won’t report a loved one or other driver who takes to the wheel while impaired?

Think again.  The last thing people want to deal with over the holidays is the devastation of losing a loved one to an impaired driver.  The OPP is asking Ontarians to help them crack down on impaired drivers this holiday season.  If you suspect an impaired driver, call 9-1-1.

We Want to Hear From You

The OPP encourages the public to sign up and participate in our social media discussions by following the links to our French and English social media accounts posted on the front page of the OPP website.  Give us your thoughts about impaired driving and show your support for the officers who will be working around the clock to make sure that you and your loved ones have safe and enjoyable holiday season.

OPP Warn Haliburton County Residents about Fraudulent Phone Calls Related to Computer Servicing

(HALIBURTON, ON) – The Haliburton Highlands Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), has received numerous reports from people living in Haliburton County, reporting suspicious phone calls they are receiving indicating that there is a problem with their computer.

In the scheme, company representatives cold call individuals and state that their computer is running slow or has viruses. The caller then offers to repair the computer over the Internet, which can involve the installation of software.  In some cases, the caller has asked for remote access to computers, which allows the representative to access to the computer, from another computer, to install the software, or repair the operating system.

Payment for the software or repair service is handled via credit card.  Credit card charges have ranged from $35.00 to $469.00 and are being debited by banks in Germany, Latvia, Russia, Ukraine, Mauritius, United States and Iceland.

The OPP remind you that allowing an unknown third party to remotely download software or remotely access a computer carries inherent risks. Key loggers or other malicious software could be installed to capture sensitive data such as online banking user names and passwords, bank account information, identity information, etc.

Other variations of the scam also involve consumers responding to pop‐up ads online offering anti‐virus software. These pop‐ups are often referred to as “Scareware”, as the message in the pop‐up is commonly crafted to entice feelings of alarm and anxiety and that there is a threat to their computer if they don’t click on the link.

If you feel that you have a problem with your computer, take it to a trusted computer technician that can repair it, or install the proper anti-virus software.  Never allow someone remote access to your computer.

If you think you or someone you know has been a victim of fraud, please contact theCanadian AntiFraud Centre 18884958501 or www.antifraudcentre.ca
