A two day blitz as a part of National Safe Driving Week resulted in 30 motorists charged with impaired driving.

RCMP across Saskatchewan were on the lookout for various offences during National Safe Driving Week on Dec. 1 to 7, but during Dec. 7 and 8 detachments and traffic units across Saskatchewan participated in a coordinated impaired driving enforcement initiative.

During their checkpoint enforcement, police laid 30 impaired driving charges, they issued 34 roadside suspensions for alcohol, while 75 motorists passed breathalizer tests issued during the enforcement period.

RCMP Saskatchewan is encouraging everyone to commit to driving sober.

“Impaired driving is an entirely preventable cause of death and injuries that devastates families and communities,”  RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson stated in a press release kicking off the nationwide impaired driving enforcement campaign. “A small decision can have great consequences, please make the right choice before you get behind the wheel. Everyone has the right to come home safe. ”
