As part of our commitment to Traffic Safety, the Regina Police Service will be hosting a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.) Fall Traffic Enforcement Blitz on September 19th and 20th in Regina.
This two-day initiative will consist of a large-scale enforcement campaign that will take place in various locations around the city of Regina. Motorists and other members of the public can expect to see police members from agencies across Saskatchewan. Approximately 40 police officers will be joined by resources such as commercial vehicle inspection experts and child car seat technicians. Safety for all users of the roadway is the goal.
Motorists should be prepared to stop when/if they encounter enforcement or vehicle inspection teams. Police will be looking for violations of the Traffic Safety Act and Vehicle Equipment Regulations and – if they find any – they will take enforcement action. Some targeted offences include speeding, seatbelt use, cellular phone use, unlicensed drivers and commercial vehicle violations. At the same time, Criminal Code offences, such as impaired driving, will also be high on the enforcement priority list.
S.T.E.P. is a multi-agency task force focused on strategies to improve traffic safety in the province. Members include representatives from municipal Police Services and the RCMP across Saskatchewan, along with Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), and the Provincial Ministries of Justice, Finance, and Highways & Infrastructure (Highway Transport Patrol).
