The RCMP Holiday Check Stop Program will begin on Friday and continue through the New Year until January 2, 2011. The check stop program will focus on alcohol and drug-impaired drivers as well as seat belt use.
Drinking and driving or not wearing a seat belt is never a good idea, especially while going 100 km/h on our snowy highways. Be smart. Protect yourself and others that are on the road.
There have been 58 fatal collisions on Manitoba highways this year that killed 65 people. 34 percent of which were attributed to drunk driving.
