Al­berta RCMP tack­les im­paired driv­ing with traf­fic safety en­force­ment op­er­a­tions over the long week­end

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - NEWS - Con­trib­uted

Al­berta roads typ­i­cally ex­pe­ri­ence an in­flux of driv­ers dur­ing long week­ends and this Canada Day was no ex­cep­tion. From June 28 un­til July

1, 2019, three peo­ple lost their lives and 28 were injured in mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sions in Al­berta RCMP ju­ris­dic­tions.

“This Canada Day long week­end, Cen­tral Al­berta RCMP Traf­fic Ser­vices con­ducted suc­cess­ful traf­fic en­force­ment op­er­a­tions fo­cused on im­paired driv­ing, in­clud­ing Check­stops,” says S/Sgt. Da­mon Poole, Al­berta RCMP Traf­fic Ser­vices.

“We re­mind Al­ber­tans to be re­spon­si­ble be­hind the wheel: know your lim­its, plan a safe way to get home and never drive if you’re im­paired by al­co­hol or drugs.”

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 traf­fic safety tips on Face­book @RCMPinAl­berta and Twit­ter @ RCMPAl­berta.
