There have been several recent inquiries regarding traffic enforcement within the City of Whitehorse and area. Whitehorse RCMP are working hard to keep the roads safe. In May 2024, Whitehorse RCMP issued 70 traffic related tickets, 73 warnings, 6 – 24-hour suspensions, 7 impaired charges, and impounded 15 vehicles.RCMP are reminding all Yukoners that traffic safety is everyone’s responsibility. Here are some tips for safe driving;• Slow down, and maintain a 20-30 second visual lead to identify unexpected problems.• Follow the rules of the road.• Watch for children. With school out for the summer, its more important than ever to watch for kids playing on the street and riding bicycles.• Make sure you look for pedestrians at intersections, not just other vehicles.• Watch for Bicyclists and give them plenty of space.• Don’t drive if you are using alcohol or drugs. “We all need to do our part to help keep roads safe. Ensure you operate your vehicle cautiously and considerately towards others on the road. Together, we can make our roads a safer place for everyone.” Staff Sergeant Jill McLaren🚓 See MoreSee Less

Scott patiently taught me how to safely ride a motorcycle, and he did an excellent job! I highly recommend Yukon Driving Academy to teach you how to be safe on the road, two wheels or four. Thanks for an awesome experience, Scott!

I highly recommend Scott and his new adventure! He has taken my daughter out for driving lessons many times. He is a very patient passenger/instructor. I spoke with him a few times about concerns I had with some of her habits, not only did he work on them with her, but he also gave me some tips on how to correct her...patiently 😊 He has been very invested in her becoming a great driver, and will be taking her out for one more lesson a few days before she takes the road test to make sure she is good and ready!
