Canada Road Safety Week is an enforcement-driven initiative designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures in order to save lives and reduce injuries on our roads. This year’s campaign will run from May 15th to May 21st with a focus on behaviours that put drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other vulnerable road users most at risk. Enhanced enforcement efforts including Police Check-Stops will be active all week with specific emphasis on:

–          Alcohol-Impaired driving

–          Drug-Impaired driving

–          Fatigue-Impaired driving

The Brandon Police Service is committed to road safety through education and enforcement efforts. Road safety is a shared responsibility that can save lives and reduce injuries on our streets. BPS encourages all road users to focus on safe driving practices during not only Canada Road Safety Week but also every day of the year.
