This past Labour Day long weekend, Alberta RCMP Traffic Services enhanced enforcement patrols on secondary highways in conjunction with Special Area Peace Officers. The patrols covered Highways 9, 41, 570 and 884.
Between August 30-31, 2019, Alberta RCMP and law enforcement partners issued over 160 violation tickets, including 56 for speeding within one construction zone.
Alberta RCMP remind all road users that traffic safety is a shared responsibility. We ask Albertans to stay focused on the road, follow all traffic control signs and travel at the posted speed limit.
The RCMP will continue to focus joint force operation efforts with Special Area Peace Officers on traffic enforcement in construction zones and heavily trafficked areas until mid-October 2019.
