Manitoba RCMP lay 43 impaired driving charges in a week
RCMP officers crackdown on traffic offenses for National Road Safety Week
RCMP took over 40 impaired drivers off of Manitoba roads in the past week.
Officers upped enforcement, adding checkstops throughout the province as part of National Road Safety Week.
The campaign ran from May 13 to 20 this year, and 43 people were charged with impaired driving.
Another 68 were ticketed for failing to wear seatbelts, and 746 were given speeding tickets.
RCMP officers also issued 26 tickets for distracted driving.
Despite ramped up traffic enforcement, three fatal collisions occurred on Manitoba roads while the program was in place.
