During a traffic safety spotlight focused on drunk and high motorists, law enforcement reported 369 impaired driving offences last month, according to Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI).
The Crown corporation said there were 295 impaired driving offences during the same type of spotlight over December 2019.
Other results from the last spotlight included 414 distracted driving tickets, 3,453 tickets for aggressive driving and speeding as well as 207 tickets for not being properly buckled up.
SGI said the biggest concern remains impaired driving as it’s still the leading cause of fatal crashes on the province’s roads. It added police will focus on this offence again in February, May, September and December.
Currently, intersection and railway safety is the main theme of January’s spotlight.
