In his Oct. 5 column, We can make some choices now, Winnipeg police Chief Devon Clunis states that "individuals and communities have the ability and responsibility to make decisions" in regard to safety in our community.

He focuses on the serving of liquor and the violent crimes drinking can lead to. The examples provided by Clunis include, stabbing, robbery and assault. Missing from his list is impaired driving and the crimes related to it.

Each year in Manitoba, on average, 40 people are killed on our highways and streets due to impairment-related crashes. Several hundred more of our citizens are injured, many seriously. When will Clunis be willing to sit down with members of MADD Canada and representatives of the city and province to discuss the Report Impaired Driving (RID) 911 campaign?

This initiative has been proven to reduce the number of impaired drivers on the roads across Canada. It has been highly successful in other cities in Manitoba. Results were proven last December in Brandon, where its CheckStop program found zero violators.
