FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. — Unsafe drivers are being targeted by a number of RCMP traffic crackdowns in Alberta this month.
More than 400 traffic offences were racked up on Hwy. 63 near Fort McMurray over the weekend, and police plan to continue the campaign through mid-May.
In other areas of the province, RCMP are carrying out Mission Impossible, a traffic safety campaign launched in early April.
Police are warning drivers to be careful, as there will be an increased police presence on the roads.
“We’ll be anywhere we’ve received complaints from citizens. We’re not just sitting on Highway 63, we’re hitting the residential area,” says Cpl. Bruce Robertson of the RCMP’s traffic section.
