In a media release, Manitoba RCMP report that "over the Thanksgiving holiday long weekend, officers participated in the annual "Operation Impact" initiative, which focused on the enforcement of high-risk driving behaviours that frequently contribute to serious and fatal motor vehicle collisions.

The enforcement action provided the following results:

- 1502 vehicles were checked at 24 individual checkstops throughout Manitoba
- 15 drivers were charged with Impaired Driving
- 16 drivers received a Roadside Suspension
- 18 tickets were issued for "Distracted Driving"

The Manitoba RCMP wish to remind the public that although this was a weekend dedicated to extra traffic enforcement, our officers are out there each and every day looking for those who may put the lives of other drivers at risk. 

Our goal is to get everyone home safely."
