Mr Introducing the xllbeiia CHECK STOP Solicitor General Helen Hunley announces a new life-saving program on Alberta's streets and highways. Why? Because more than half of all fatal accidents are caused by drivers who drink too much. These grim projections for the next twelve months should make every Albertan stop and think. When drinking drivers in Alberta fill their glass- es that one more time" they will also fill the equivalent of a 300-grave cemetery In addition, these impaired drivers will fill casualty-ward beds with injured men, wo- men and children many of them maimed for life. A population larger than that of Fort McMur- ray killed or injured in just one year1 Drivers who drink too much are responsible for more than half of all traffic fatalities and injuries in our province. And behind the cold statistics are scenes of horror and heartache. Orphaned children. Gnef-stnck- en parents. A whole family can be wiped out in one disastrous, alcohol-induced collision. In just one year these grim predictions will become reality unless something is done and done now. There's only one answer Dangerous drinking drivers must be kept off the road This is why ail thinking drivers will support the ALBERTA CHECK STOP PROGRAM. Local programs will now be co-ordinated on a prov- ince-wide basis, with more Check Stops than ever before. This all-Alberta program will involve a routine check of insurance pink cards, which all drivers must carry as proof of financial responsibility in the event of an accident. To keep impaired drivers off our streets and highways, we must stop safe ones as well. But the only driver who need worry at the Check Stop is the driver whose social drink after work didn't stop at just one or two. Or the driver whose "one for the road" was one too many. That may be the driver behind you or the one ahead. You don't want him on the same road that you're using. Neither do we1 He's a potential disaster to you and your family Alberta Check Stops can keep him off the road With your co-operation, the Check Stops can reduce that deplorable, tragic fifty per cent.
