The Festive RIDE program has kicked off this week and with it comes various check stops around the Muskoka region.
OPP in Muskoka wants to make sure its officers out on the road are safe.
Officials have a few tips for drivers who are approaching a RIDE check stop over the next few months.
When you are stopping make sure you are aware of where the officer is and have your window down.
Pay attention to whether the officer is directing you to stop or keep moving.
Officials say the most important thing to remember is to always approach any RIDE check stop with your complete attention on what’s happening around you.
The Festive RIDE program will run through the Christmas and New Year’s holidays until January 7th.
