They report 93 people were charged with a criminal code impaired driving offence including impaired, over .08, refusal and impaired by a drug. There were also 18 other criminal code driving offences, 45 charges for failing to wear a seatbelt, 29 liquor and gaming control act charges and 1428 other highway traffic act offences. One person was killed in a traffic collision during the time of the checkstop program but the RCMP report impaired driving was not considered a factor.
