Over the past weekend additional Manitoba RCMP officers were on the road for visibility and enforcement. They paid particular attention to apprehending impaired drivers as well as those driving too fast for road conditions.
From Friday through Sunday 300 vehicles were checked. Four people were charged with either impaired driving or driving over .08, two people were charged with possession of marihuana, six with alcohol related administrative suspensions, 2 with driving while disqualified and there were 172 other highway traffic charges laid.
The RCMP add road safety is for all seasons so checkstops are conducted year round, not just during the holiday season.
