Local Officers Receive ARIDE Training

60-70% of people who get arrested for DUI in the U.S. are drug impaired drivers


by John Vogt - October 15, 2014

Today’s feature story is the second part of our two-day series on safe driving. Yesterday, Home Page covered the national Save a Life Tour, sponsored by Indigo Wireless, which focused on distracted driving. Today’s feature spotlights the ARIDE Program. ARIDE stands for Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement. The main purpose of this training program is to teach law enforcement officers the signs and symptoms of drug-impaired drivers.

This broadcast also points out the consequences of driving under the influence and once again encourages you to drive safely.

We also talk with Wildlife Conservation Officers Rodney Mee and Patrick Cull about the program and why they attend. Officer Mee stated that drugs are a big problem now and that through this training he hopes to gain the skills that will help him better recognize impaired driving.

Officer Cull said that the training will help them to be more effective officers. He pointed out that as Wildlife Conservation Officers they use the hunting under the influence laws to protect us. But they also do DUI stops like other police officers. This training will make them more effective in responding to DUI problems as well.

George Geisler is the Director of Law Enforcement Services for the Pennsylvania DUI Association and is the main instructor for this training. George told Home Page that approximately 60 to 70% of arrested DUI drivers are drug impaired. He said that people are starting to get the fact that driving under the influence of alcohol not a good thing to do – but drugs? We have a lot of work to do in this regard.

We encourage our Wellsboro Home Page viewers to take a few moments to sit down as a family and watch these two important broadcasts. This is extremely important if you have young drivers in your household.

Thanks again for making Wellsboro Home Page your Home Page.
