Yukon RCMP stopped more than twice as many drivers as last year as part of Canada Road Safety Week.
The national blitz targeting bad drivers wrapped up on Monday.
A total of 3,717 vehicles were checked and 417 tickets were issued at about 30 locations across the territory.
Four people were nabbed for allegedly driving while impaired. Other charges include 297 for speeding, 32 for failure to wear a seatbelt, 12 for distracted driving, 15 for failure to stop at a stop sign and 11 for driving without insurance.
The record for the biggest lead foot caught this year goes to the driver caught doing 161 km/h in a 100 zone.
“There’s still a lot of work to be done,” said Cpl. Shawn Pollard, the head of the territory’s traffic services division.
This year’s safety week was a busy one for the RCMP. By comparison, during the 2015 Road Safety Week campaign, Yukon RCMP checked 1,672 vehicles and issued 184 tickets. That week included 11 charges of impaired driving.
All RCMP officers keep an eye on the road for violations, Pollard said. This year the traffic services division had four dedicated officers involved compared to two last year.
