Impaired Driving Awareness Week in Saskatchewan
Now through March 9 is Impaired Driving Awareness Week in Saskatchewan. SGI is joining Students Against Drinking and Driving (SADD) Saskatchewan in supporting Impaired Driving Awareness Week, proclaimed by the Provincial government.
The annual week, originally proclaimed in 1999, raises awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving, which is the number one contributing factor in fatal collisions in Saskatchewan. Preliminary numbers show that in 2011, there were more than 1,200 collisions involving alcohol, resulting in more than 500 injuries and nearly 50 fatalities.
