351 en­force­ment actions in RCMP CTSS traf­fic blitz

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current - CON­TRIB­UTED

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.
