National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day taking place across Canada

RCMP and Highway Safety conducted extensive checks in Brudenell Friday morning looking for everything from expired inspection stickers to drunk driving.

P.E.I. RCMP are joining National Impaired Driving Enforcement Day efforts taking place today across Canada.

"Alcohol and drug induced impaired driving is a great concern to the RCMP, which should come as no surprise, as media report another impaired driver being caught on our roads almost daily," states a news release from RCMP about today's activities.

RCMP say community members across the Island who call in when they see a suspected impaired driver have led to more drunk driving convictions.

"Those who assist police in apprehending impaired drivers are definitely in the right corner of this fight and your assistance is very much appreciated," states the release.

Organizations: RCMP

Geographic location: Prince Edward Island, Canada

    i think the public could use some education on what to watch for and how to report suspected drunk,(high,impaired or dangerous) drivers-- The more educated the less likely a person will be to miss an opportunity to help - maybe a series of repeating articles in easily accessible sites-phones,computers -paper --i know this idea has already been initiated but it is a very difficult job to educate people -not because of the people -instead just the difficult topic of spotting and reporting properly- wish i could report cell phone users -they stick out like a pink cadillac with orange mags
