Lethbridge, Alberta – Lethbridge Police charged three impaired drivers and issued 40 tickets during a weekend traffic enforcement project that will continue throughout the summer.
The goal of the ongoing enforcement initiative is to provide safer roads for all users by targeting impaired driving, speeding, excessive vehicle noise, racing, stunting and other illegal behaviours in areas throughout the city where members of the publics have reported concerns. A similar initiative was successfully conducted throughout the summer of 2022 and resulted in a decrease of traffic complaints.
In addition to charging three impaired drivers, police also apprehended four drivers going more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. The excessive speeding violations result in a mandatory court appearance with fines at the discretion of the court.
Members of the Traffic Response Unit will continue to provide a highly visible police presence to deter and enforce driving violations.
Anyone with concerns about traffic issues in specific areas of the city is asked to call 403-328-4444.
