Members at detachments around the province will be looking for people who fail to wear their seatbelts.
"November is Occupant Restraint Month for the RCMP across the province," outlined Constable Mike Hibbs of the force's media relations office for Southern Alberta. "In 2016, 53 people lost their lives and 375 people sustained injuries in Alberta as a result of not properly being restrained in their car."
"Across your shoulder, down to your waist and across your waist as well, and make sure the seatbelt is properly fastened," he instructed. "Also it's the law in Alberta that children under the age of six, or under 40 pounds, be properly restrained in a car seat -- booster seats for children under nine years of age."
"In the province of Alberta (for) any passenger under the age of 18 the driver is responsible for," he added. "If they don't wear their seatbelts and you're stopped, then the driver can be charged $155 for each passenger that's not wearing a seatbelt in the vehicle."
Earlier this week, one man was killed and two more were injured when a pickup truck left the road at highway speed and rolled beside the Verdant Valley Road east of the Michichi turnoff. It would appear that the victims were not wearing seatbelts.
