Prince Albert police are running a traffic safety campaign Thursday and Friday.

Part of the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP), police will be randomly stopping vehicles across the city violating traffic laws.

“Police from agencies across Saskatchewan will be present at these spots, so motorists

should be prepared to stop,” Sgt. Travis Willie said in a press release.

Drivers caught speeding, using their cellphone or not wearing a seatbelt are some of the offences targeted. Impaired driving will be high on the list for enforcement.

STEP is a multi-agency task force comprised of police services from across the province, SGI, Highway Transport Patrol and the provincial Ministries of Justice. The campaign is designed to improve traffic safety across the province.
