Highway 63, the road to Fort McMurray, was the target for Alberta Integrated Traffic Services last week.

Members of the unit conducted an enforcement initiative on the highway focusing on commercial vehicles and motorists travelling from Edmonton to Fort McMurray.

Over 200 vehicles were checked for numerous infractions. A total of 27 charges were laid for Traffic Safety Act offences and one commercial vehicle was taken out of service.

The traffic services unit is reminding the public that Highway 63 leading out of Fort McMurray can get very congested. Care should be taken at all times to ensure a safe arrival to your destination.
