351 enforcement actions in RCMP CTSS traffic blitz
From May 3-5, RCMP Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan (CTSS) Swift Current hosted a Joint Forces Operation (JFO) throughout the southwest corner of the province.
During the three-day initiative, 16 police and peace officers from the RCMP and various municipal and provincial agencies targeted a multitude of traffic safety offences.
Over the duration of the operation, 577 vehicle contacts were made with 351 enforcement actions being initiated.
Unfortunately, 31 of these charges were laid in relation to exceeding 60 km/hr when passing an emergency vehicle. CTSS also charged one driver for impaired operation of a motor vehicle near the town of Eastend.
Our safety partnerships play an important role in ensuring safe roads throughout the year in all communities throughout Saskatchewan.
As we head towards warmer weather this spring and into the summer season, we all will see an increase in traffic volumes on our roadways. CTSS reminds all road users to be cognizant of all rules of the road and be safe while travelling to and from your destinations.
