On March 6, Crime Stoppers Association of Edmonton and Northern Alberta with support from the Alberta Office of Traffic Safety will be launching a multi-faceted awareness campaign about reporting Habitual Impaired Driving.
Impaired driving is a critical issue in Alberta. While efforts exist to encourage the public to report in-progress impaired drivers, many are not aware of an avenue to report known chronic/habitual impaired drivers. Crime Stoppers offers an anonymous tip line where individuals can report people that may be involved in this activity. The information provided through the tip line would allow enforcement to be more ‘target specific’ and more proactive as opposed to reactive (in progress).
The Not JUST a Bad Habit campaign will promote talking, typing or texting tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers as a method of reporting habitually impaired drivers.
