This long weekend, as Albertans were preparing for back-to-school season and enjoying the last break before the end of summer, Alberta RCMP conducted enforcement initiatives across the province focused on tackling speeding offences.
Between August 30 and September 2, 2019, Alberta RCMP responded to 226 motor vehicle collisions which resulted in 27 injuries.
The RCMP reminds all road users that the posted speed limits are for driving in ideal conditions. With children returning to school, it is especially important to be mindful of the posted signage and make sure you are not driving over the speed limit.
The Alberta RCMP will continue to work with Alberta Sheriffs and other law enforcement and safety partners to ensure Albertans make the right driving decisions. Follow our #Safety101 traffic tips on Facebook @RCMPinAlberta and Twitter @RCMPAlberta.
