RCMP reminds Albertans to enjoy holiday season safely


Alberta RCMP is reminding people to keep safety in mind this holiday season.

“This December, and always, remember to enjoy the holidays responsibly. If you are attending a party, make sure you have a sober ride home, or a safe place to spend the night,” said Sgt. Darrin Turnbull.

“Last year, in Alberta RCMP jurisdictions, we responded to 233 fatal collisions, of which approximately 25 per cent involved alcohol or drugs. Alberta RCMP also removed 7,573 impaired drivers from Alberta roadways, that’s the equivalent of more than 20 impaired drivers per day.”

On Saturday, in support of National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day, RCMP officers will be out conducting traffic enforcement initiatives and check stops, removing impaired drivers from our roadways.
