Meanwhile, police issued 233 traffic violation tickets, which included 47 for seat belt non-compliance and 86 speeding offences.

In September, officers apprehended 80 impaired drivers. Mounties say with all the education and enforcement being conducted, it is unclear why motorists continue to drive while under the influence.
