Manitoba RCMP are cracking down on motorists who don’t use seat belts and child restraints.
During the month of October, traffic units and detachments across the province will be on roadways providing increased vigilance with regular patrols and special check stops.
“Our aim is to remind the driving public not only that wearing a seat belt and using child restraints reduce serious injury and death, but also that it’s the law,” said Assistant Commissioner Bill Robinson, Commanding Officer, RCMP “D” Division.
This month-long initiative will be further enhanced during October 9-12 when the focus is expanded to include all high risk behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk, including impaired driving, non use of seat belts, and all aspects related to aggressive driving.
