Enforcement activities are focusing on offences related to speeding, distracted driving, seatbelt use, unlicensed drivers and commercial vehicle standards. As usual, impaired driving enforcement will be a top priority, say RCMP.

STEP is a multi-agency task force dedicated to improving traffic safety across Saskatchewan. Members include municipal police agencies, the RCMP, Saskatchewan Highway Patrol, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Police, and representatives from SGI and the Ministries of Justice and Finance.

Thursday, they could be found near the North Saskatchewan River bridge, on the hill down from the Capitol Theatre, around Humpty’s, the pull out by the Chamber of Commerce (checking semis) and by the old CNR station.
