The Thunder Bay police say they are encouraged that there were fewer impaired drivers arrested during their festive RIDE program.
Constable Mark Cattani tells us 15 individuals were caught over the limit this time compared to 19 the year before.
He says they notice a significant reduction in three day suspensions.
Cattani believes this means people either chose not to drink or to drink to excess and drive.
The police constable also notes there were a number of tickets issued for cannabis related violations including driving under the influence.
