Every year some 3,000 Canadians are killed and more than 200,000 are injured in traffic collisions. One-third of these casualties occur in RCMP jurisdiction. Traffic crashes are one of the leading causes of death among youth, and impaired driving remains the greatest criminal cause of death in Canada. More than $9 billion CDN is spent annually on health care and social costs relating to traffic crashes. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) vision is to contribute towards making Canada’s roads the safest in the world by the year 2010.
