Members of our Divisional Community Support Units, and Central Traffic Unit with the support of Air 1 were involved in Sunday Cruise Night Traffic Enforcement. During this city-wide campaign officers engaged numerous motorists, some of which were noted as suspended drivers, operating a motor vehicle while using cellular devices and one driver in particular travelling at an excessive speed.  
The vast majority of individuals who operate vehicles on cruise night choose to do so in a responsible, respectful and legal manner.  However, the Winnipeg Police Service continues to receive complaints regarding racing, dangerous operation of motor vehicles, and noisy operation of motor vehicles.  These complaints come from all areas of the city.
Throughout the night officers focused on road safety and education. These conversations accompanied the following warnings issued to drivers:
1 - Alcohol Screening Device (Warning)
5 - Excessive Noise
5 - License Plate related
8 - Required Equipment
10 - Window Tint
6 - Seatbelt
55 Provincial Offence Notices (Tickets)were issued to drivers throughout the evening. The offenses include the following:
