Rob Davis, of the EPS Impaired Driving Unit. “These were undertaken following the introduction of Mandatory Alcohol Screening to the EPS Checkstop program in 2019.” Mandatory Alcohol Screening became a tool police officers could use across Canada when the Bill C46 (part 2) came into effect in December 2018.<br> <br> Mandatory alcohol screening gives police the authority to demand a breath sample from any driver lawfully pulled over. It greatly increases the number of drivers screened for impairment, resulting in more impaired drivers being detected.<br> <br> “It’s our goal to make Edmonton a safer city, and a majority of the citizens we interacted with following the implementation of Mandatory Alcohol Screening were very happy to see us in their communities supporting them this way,” said Sgt. Davis. <br> <br> “The message to Edmonton drivers, regardless if you’re a first-time driver or have been driving for many years, is the same: If you’re going to drink or use recreational drugs then don’t drive - have a plan to get home safely.” </span></p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: left;"><span style="color: black;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: left;"><span style="color: black;">“The $20 to $40 cab or uber ride home is absolutely worth the spend. If you drive and you get pulled over at a Checkstop line or by one of our roaming police officers, you’re going to be asked to provide a breath sample.”<br> <br> The total number of roadside suspensions increased by 104 (an over 50% increase) from 2018 to 2019, the direct result of the mandatory screenings. <br> </span><span><br> A breakdown of Checkstop Operation numbers from 2018 to 2019 is included below. </span>If you suspect a driver is impaired, please contact police to Curb the Danger:</p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> <li> <p style="text-align: left;
