Manitoba RCMP Wants Death-Free May Long Weekend On Highways
WINNIPEG, MB – The Manitoba RCMP are increasing their efforts to end the string of deaths on Manitoba highways during May long weekend.
Since 2012, at least one person has died every year on the highways, with deaths reaching a high of 4 in 2014.
RCMP will be focusing their efforts on Highway 52 in between La Broquerie and Steinbach, Highway 10 south of Brandon, and Highway 207 from Deacons Corner and Lorette.
According to RCMP, the key causes of the highway deaths are individuals not wearing seat-belts, people driving drunk, distracted driving, and overly aggressive driving.
