Three people died and 28 others were injured in vehicle collisions in Alberta’s RCMP jurisdictions during the long weekend period.
Police say Alberta roads typically experience an influx of drivers during long weekends, and Canada Day was no different.
“This Canada Day long weekend, central Alberta RCMP traffic services conducted successful traffic enforcement operations focused on impaired driving, including checkstops,” says Staff Sgt. Damon Poole.
“We remind Albertans to be responsible behind the wheel: know your limits, plan a safe way to get home and never drive if you’re impaired by alcohol or drugs.”
