Fort Saskatchewan RCMP and fire department held a Candy Cane Checkstop earlier this month.
The December 14 stop on 99 Avenue saw a large number of commuters, including parents and kids coming from an event at École Parc Élémentaire.
"They're just a reminder to everyone to practice safe driving over the holidays and raise some awareness," said Constable Janice Schoepp with the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
It wasn't just the police and fire department; mayor Gale Katchur was there, joined by Operation Red Nose, Prairie EMS and Citizens on Patrol.
"People were stopped and approached by an officer," explained Schoepp. "They were provided a little bag with some goodies, literature and as well candy canes, of course."
She was happy to report that every single person that went through the checkstop was sober.
They are planning more Checkstops over the Christmas season, but for obvious reasons, can't disclose when or where they'll be set up.
