News release

RCMP members from across the province participated in over 20 checkpoints during National Safe Driving Week December 1st - 7th and National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day, which was December 7th.

Approximately 3,000 vehicles were checked, resulting in 4 Impaired Driving related charges, a roadside suspension related to alcohol consumption, several driving while prohibited charges, and 50 charges related to expired registrations, expired inspections, and other traffic offences.

The RCMP would like to remind the public that they will be increasing the number of checkpoints as the busy holiday season approaches to both detect, and deter, impaired driving related offences.

If you are going to be consuming alcohol or other intoxicating substances, plan ahead to have a sober driver, or make other arrangements so you do not have to drive while impaired.
