REGINA, Sask. –Saskatchewan highways were a little safer for drivers this winter, thanks to the expansion of the provincial government’s Night Rider program, according to the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.
This enhanced surveillance program of high-traffic provincial highways is now based out of Moose Jaw, and similar to three other Night Rider programs based out of Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert.
“Our Night Riders this winter have come to the aid of a professional truck driver and have provided traffic accommodation to assist police at a collision. This extra set of eyes on the highway gives motorists an added sense of comfort, and helps the Ministry provide better winter maintenance service,” said Highways and Infrastructure Minister Wayne Elhard. •
