Canada Road Safety Week – May 15th-21st, 2018
Motorists will notice an increase in check stops and traffic enforcement on roadways this week. The seven-day national campaign will be focusing on making roads safer.
Enforcement agencies across Canada have been invited to participate in the annual campaign. The Road Safety week also includes National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
According to the RCMP news release; 37 people died on RCMP-policed roadways from 32 impaired-related collisions in 2017. So far in 2018, 9 people have died in 8 impaired-related collisions on RCMP-policed roadways.
“Members will be focusing on impaired, distracted and aggressive driving, speeding and seatbelt use during this week-long initiative. Drive sober, plan a safe ride home, spend the night at a friend’s or report an impaired driver. We must all do our part and we are challenging the people of Saskatchewan to ask: what are you going to do to make Saskatchewan’s roads safer?” – Supt. St. Germaine, Officer in Charge of “F” Division Traffic Services.
