The annual RCMP Selective Traffic Enforcement Program starts tomorrow, and will continue until New Years Day.

All RCMP Detachments and Traffic Services Units throughout the province will be participating in the program focusing on the detection and apprehension of impaired drivers and other high risk driving behaviours.

Last year, over 11,700 vehicles were checked during 262 checkstops that resulted in 105 people charged with Criminal Code Impaired Driving offences and 30 roadside suspensions.

Five people lost their lives in traffic-related collisions.
