If you are travelling on the QEII between Airdrie and Edmonton this long weekend you might experience some delays.

According to the Central Alberta RCMP, they are advising motorists of the continued protest occurring on the QEII at the Juniper Lake Rest Stop. 

"RCMP advise that often times these protests have included vehicles conducting a 'slow roll' consisting of a small convoy of vehicles driving below the speed limit on the highways. Motorists are advised to expect delays or take alternate routes," stated the RCMP.

RCMP also warned travellers of the protest causing delays back in late April.

Mounties have also provided some tips on how to stay safe this long weekend and avoid unsafe driving:

  • If you consume drugs or alcohol, arrange for transportation from a sober friend, taxi, family member, or ride-sharing service.
  • Get enough sleep, and if you find yourself getting tired while driving, find a safe place to pull over for a rest.
  • If you are becoming agitated with another driver, or encounter another motorist driving aggressively, safely pull over and contact the police.
  • Always buckle up no matter how short your trip is.
