The RCMP will be in full force this month.
 
On Saturday (December 2), many Albertans were held accountable during National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day with plenty of checkstops in the capital region. 
 
In the Fort, two impaired drivers were stopped and three open liquor tickets were handed out.

“Impaired driving is a leading cause of death and injury on Alberta roads, but we can’t tackle this issue alone,” said Rick Gardner, Superintendent of Alberta Sheriffs. “Everyone has a part to play and that starts with planning ahead to have a designated driver or a safe ride when heading out to the festivities.”
 
Checkstops on highways and roads will continue throughout December.
