Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Results

On June 12th and 13th, the Moose Jaw Police hosted a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) blitz.

Members of the MJPS, other police services, and partner agencies worked alongside one another to identify traffic violations and take enforcement action. This two-day initiative took place at various locations around Moose Jaw.

During the two-day initiative, approximately 780 vehicles were checked.

The results were:
1. 140 tickets issued
2. 197 warnings
3. 528 Approved Screening Device (ASD) demands (impaired driving roadside screening test)
4. 17 Oral Fluid Tests (drug-impaired driving)
5. 15 roadside alcohol/drug suspensions

Enforcement activities focused on offences related to speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, seatbelt use, unlicensed drivers, and commercial vehicle standards.

STEP is a multi-agency task force dedicated to improving traffic safety across Saskatchewan. Members include municipal police agencies, the RCMP, the Saskatchewan Highway Patrol, and representatives from SGI and the Ministries of Justice and Finance.

The Moose Jaw Police Service thanks members of the public for their accommodation of this traffic safety initiative.
