POLICE BEAT: Cyclist complaints

Increasing number of complaints in regards to cyclists riding on the sidewalks in city limits

There have been an increasing number of complaints in regards to cyclists riding on the sidewalks in city limits, according to the RCMP.

“This is more noticable in the areas that are in between the sea walk and other dedicated trails,” said Staff Sgt. Troy Beauregard. “Cyclists are reminded that when riding their bikes they are to be on the roads following  traffic laws and when on the sidewalks they are to dismount.”

Cycling on a sidewalk carries a $109 fine. Members of the Campbell River RCMP will be monitoring for this while conducting bike patrols.

Power boats in prohibited area

Police have received a complaint about power driven vessels traveling in the propeller prohibited zone adjacent to Tyee Spit.

Propeller driven boats and floatplanes are prohibited from operating between the two “No Propellers” signs on shore out to 185 meters from the low water mark.

The regulation governing this area and fine amount is: Operate Power Driven Vessel Where Prohibited – fine: $230. Canada Shipping Act – Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations. Section 2(3)  (VORR)

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans and RCMP West Coast Marine Section will be monitoring for compliance.
