On Friday, April 29th, 2016, the Leduc Municipal Integrated Traffic Unit conducted an Alberta Checkstop on Highway 2A near Highway 2, in the City of Leduc, checking for driver sobriety and licencing.

In addition, officers were also promoting the R.I.D. (Report Impaired Drivers) program, an initiative supported by the City of Leduc. Several hundred R.I.D. notepads and pens were handed out to motorists during the hour and a half long operation.

During the Spring and Summer months, the Leduc Municipal Integrated Traffic Unit will be conducting many more Alberta Checkstops in an effort to detect impaired drivers and remove them from the roadway.

According to Alberta Transportation, the highest number of collisions involving alcohol occur from May to October.

If you witness a suspected impaired driver, please pull over and call 9-1-1.
