Most drivers chose to be nice, not naughty in December. 

However, during a month of active enforcement police reported 361 impaired driving offences.  

SGI said that Saskatchewan police services put on more check stops this past December than they ever had before, and the overwhelming majority of drivers who passed through were sober.

Despite the advanced warnings and highly visible enforcement by police, 361 driving offences were reported, 275 of which were Criminal Code charges.  

Other results from the December Traffic Safety Spotlight included:  

  •  418 distracted driving tickets (including 346 for cellphone use)  

  •  2,975 tickets for aggressive driving and speeding 

  •  177 tickets for seatbelts and child restraint being used incorrectly or not at all 

SGI is reminding people to not let impaired friends and family drive.
