Police throughout Saskatchewan say they issued 12 tickets during April’s traffic safety focus on pedestrians, cyclists and motorists as officials tally the numbers from police services across the province.
But aside from this campaign, police reported 5,025 speeding/aggressive driving offences, 294 impaired driving-related offences, 320 distracted driving offences (251 of those for cellphone use) and 295 seatbelt/car seat/booster seat violations in April. This includes all traffic safety focus results for April submitted by police as of May 16, 2017
SGI says with temperatures rising, more people will be taking advantage of the warm weather.
Pedestrians, cyclists and motorists are reminded to stay alert and walk, bike, and ride with caution. They are also reminded to obey the rules of the road, and not take their right of way for granted.
Police remain focused on impaired driving throughout May.
