News release

Operation Impact will take place this Thanksgiving weekend from October 6 – 9, 2017. It is a national campaign designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures and to target poor driving behaviors.

Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP would like to remind the public that an essential part of our enforcement job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Educating the public in safe driving practices is a priority.

The Thanksgiving weekend is a busy weekend for motorists travelling on our roads. To ensure public safety, Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP will be conducting checkpoints and vehicle stops throughout the weekend in an effort to make our roads safer. These checkpoints are designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures and to target poor driving behaviors. The focus will be on behaviors that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk: impaired driving, seat belt use and all aspects related to aggressive and distracted driving. The public is asked to be alert and use caution when approaching these checkpoints.

Police urge motorists to contact Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP at 709-896-3383 with any driving complaints.

Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
