Burin Peninsula District RCMP and RCMP Traffic Services will participate in Canada Road Safety Week May 18-24.
Canada Road Safety Week is a national enforcement-driven initiative, designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures and to save lives. The focus of the week is to target behaviours that increase risks for drivers, passengers and other road users.
The behaviours being addressed will be non-compliance in seat belt wearing, aggressive driving, speeding, and operating without due care and attention.
Checkpoints and enforcement will be conducted throughout the entire peninsula during this period. Burin Peninsula District RCMP request that drivers reduce their speed when approaching checkpoints and obey the direction of officers.

    I'm pretty sure it's a law that if ther is a check point the public has to be notified

    Yes, it it a LAW to announce these; although then you know more people are aware so they stay off the road if impaired etc.
