Santa Claus is right into it.

Every year he writes a list of who has been naughty and who has been nice. He even checks it twice.

This year Durham Regional Police will be doing it, too, but without the nice bits.

Go to their official website and you’ll find the names of drivers charged after being stopped at RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) checkpoints.

The digital outing is part of the Durham force’s determination to screen motorists for impairment by drugs and alcohol in an effort to promote road safety over this Christmas season.

Sgt. Nancy van Rooy insisted it is an annual custom that works.
