SGI Traffic Safety Focus Remains on Impaired Driving

SGI’s traffic safety focus for August is impaired driving.

The insurance company’s Tyler McMurchy says the upcoming long weekend does add a few challenges for police.

“People are heading out on the highways, the highways are busier, so it’s even more important to make sure when you are driving you are doing so with a clear head, you’re paying attention, you’re buckled up, of course, obeying those speed limits, but very important to remain sober when behind the wheel.”

He says police across Saskatchewan catch between 200-400 impaired drivers every month.
