More flashing lights and sirens can be expected around the city, as the Moose Jaw Police Service is hosting a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) blitz on July 6 and 7.

Police from around Saskatchewan will be working alongside the MJPS to identify traffic violations and enforce the rules of the road.

This two-day initiative will take place at several locations around Moose Jaw.

The focus will be on offences related to speeding, distracted driving, seatbelt use, unlicensed drivers and commercial vehicle standards.

Impaired driving enforcement will also be top of mind for officers.

STEP is a multi-agency task force dedicated to improving traffic safety across Saskatchewan. Members include municipal police agencies, the RCMP, Saskatchewan Highway Patrol, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Police, and representatives from SGI and the Ministries of Justice and Finance.
