Busy week for RCMP

 

Campbell River RCMP has been cracking down on Impaired Driving and the statistics show it.

Between August 30 and September 6, officers set up several road checks at Highway 19 and Spit Road, Highway 28 and Quinsam Road and at McIvor Lake.

Including other pro-active patrols, officers issued 10 Immediate Roadside Prohibitions and four Criminal Code Impaired Driving charges.  All vehicles were towed and impounded from 30 to 90 days.

During that time, more than 18 calls were also placed to Campbell River RCMP to report possible impaired drivers based on driving evidence and public behaviour.

“We cannot do it alone, so if you do suspect a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol or may be driving erratically due to a medical emergency, please call,” says Cpl. Poppy Hallam of the Campbell River RCMP.

Immediate Roadside Prohibitions are a tool used by police to immediately remove impaired drivers off British Columbia’s roadways and keep our roads and communities safe.The IRP penalties are not criminal charges, but administrative penalties authorized by the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles and the provincial government.
