Alberta roads typically experience an influx of drivers during long weekends and this Canada Day was no exception.
From June 28th until July 1st, Alberta RCMP say three people lost their lives and 28 were injured in motor vehicle collisions in provincial jurisdictions.
Staff Sergeant Damon Poole says this Canada Day long weekend Central Alberta RCMP Traffic Services conducted successful traffic enforcement operations focused on impaired driving - including checkstops like the one they held in Nordegg.
He reminds Albertans to be responsible behind the wheel: know your limits, plan a safe way to get home and never drive if you are impaired by alcohol or drugs.
