Motorists can expect to see an increase of check stops throughout the NWT as part of National Road Safety Week.

RCMP say their goal is to educate drivers about unsafe and aggressive behaviors on the road. Speeding, seat belts, distracted and impaired driving will be targeted.

NWT RCMP say that over 1100 vehicles were stopped last year due to driving infractions.

It is hoped that people drive responsibly and safely when out enjoying the first long weekend of the season. National Road Safety Week runs through the long weekend until Monday, May 22nd.
