The Estevan Police Service is hosting a roadside checkstop event as part of the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP), which is a partnership between SGI and provincial police agencies to help improve safety on the province's roads.
The STEP teams are made up of representatives of all enforcement agencies in the province, with a common dedication to road safety in Saskatchewan. The focus of these teams will be seat belt and cell phone violations.
The Estevan Police Service, in conjunction with all enforcement agencies and SGI, will be holding safety check stops in and around Kensington Avenue, Fourth Street and 13th Avenue on Wednesday and Thursday.
The times on Wednesday will be 1 p.m. to 4:40 p.m. The times on Thursday will be 8 a.m. to noon.
Officers will be on the lookout for vehicle operators and passengers who aren't wearing their seat belts, and drivers using cell phones.
Law enforcement agencies involved in this project include the RCMP, the Moose Jaw, Regina and Saskatoon Police Services, the CP Rail Police, the Estevan Police Service and the Provincial Highway Transport Patrol.
