The Weyburn Police Service are reminding Weyburn residents to report impaired drivers.

The WPS also thanked "residents and motorists who help make our roads safer by reporting impaired and/or erratic drivers."

"To report an impaired driver; pull over, call 911, and provide details regarding the suspected impaired driver and vehicle such as the location, the direction of travel, vehicle description, driving behavior/action, and driver description if possible. One call is all it takes to help increase road safety and prevent devastation in our community."

Police plan to hold at least one High Visibility Enforcement Project During this week, during the Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Show, which officially kicks off tomorrow morning. They will have increased exposure with additional officers on duty during the week. 

The HVE projects focus on combatting impaired driving as well as other traffic offenses to improve road safety. The HVEs conducted in April and May resulted in two criminal charges for impaired driving as well as three driving suspensions for 72 hours involving alcohol and/or drug testing.

The Weyburn Police Service will also be joining forces with the Estevan Police Service near the end of June for a two-day Selective Traffic Enforcement Project (STEP). The major traffic safety initiative will be held on June 26th and 27th, and will include officers from other policing agencies within Saskatchewan. The project will focus mostly on one day in the Estevan and surrounding area, and one day in the Weyburn and surrounding area.
