Checkstop planned near Innisfail

The Central Alberta District Integrated Traffic Unit will be conducting a checkstop in Innisfail near Hwy 2A this weekend.

Innisfail RCMP Traffic Services and Alberta Sheriffs will be stopping vehicles from 7 p.m. on Saturday to 3 a.m. on Sunday.

The checkstop coincides with the National Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign launched by the RCMP in support of National Safe Driving Week Dec. 1 to 7.

Statistics compiled by Alberta Transportation indicate that from 2008 to 2013, 471 people were killed and 7,397 people were injured in collisions involving at least one driver who had consumed alcohol prior to a crash in the province.

During National Safe Driving Week, the Central Alberta District Innisfail ITU will be stepping up its efforts with other jurisdictions across the country to stop people driving under the influence and remove them from the highways.
