RCMP Declares Road Safety Week A Success

May 28th, 2018

Canada Road Safety Week is being viewed as a success, at least in Newfoundland and Labrador.

RCMP in the province are pleased that over the course of the week there were no reports of fatal or serious injury, or collisions and crashes.

Officers were focusing on impaired driving, seat belt compliance, aggressive driving, distracted driving and intersection violations along with other offences under the Highway Traffic Act.

Just shy of 4,000 vehicles were checked and 800 charges laid throughout the week.

508 drivers were busted for speeding, 74 for aggressive driving and 31 for seat belt infractions.

There were no drivers impaired by drug.

Canada Road Safety week is an annual and collaborative effort made by Canadian Police Services
