This week is Canada Road Safety Week, a national campaign to make Canada's roads the safest in the world.

With this weekend being the long weekend, it'll see more people travelling which will cause more collisions.

The RCMP say whether you drive a car, motorcycle, bicycle or are a pedestrian, it’s important that you focus on the road, pay attention and be aware of changes in your surroundings at all times.

Julie Courchaine an RCMP media relations officer is asking people to buckle-up, put the phone down, drive sober and slow down.

All week, police vehicles will be stationed around the province to remind people that safe driving habits save lives and reduce injuries.

So far this year, there have been 15 fatal collisions causing 15 deaths.

Courchaine says all of the fatal collisions are preventable.
