From Victoria Day long weekend to the Labor Day long weekend Manitoba RCMP issued approximately ten thousand tickets for provincial traffic charges. Roughly 63 hundred of those were issued for speeding offences with several issued for driving 50 kilometers an hour over the speed limit.
The RCMP also charged 489 individuals with criminal code impaired driving related charges and issued an additional 263 alcohol and drug related administrative suspensions.
During that time as well they responded to 28 fatal motor vehicle accidents which resulted in 30 deaths.
The RCMP are challenging you for the fall season to drive within the speed limit, buckle up, drive sober and be aware of your surroundings while behind the wheel.
