Lake Cowichan RCMP had a busy start to the summer over the weekend of June 18-19 making arrests and impounding vehicles.
Between proactive enforcement and answering calls for service, the RCMP impounded eight vehicles due to violations of the Motor Vehicle Act, arrested four prohibited drivers and issued several violation tickets, including two for excessive speeding.
“With the increase in summer traffic expected at this time of year due to the campers, festival goers, and tubers, the Lake Cowichan RCMP is reminding everyone to slow down, be mindful of the wildlife, have your drivers licence and vehicle-registration information on hand, and don’t drink and drive,” said RCMP Const. David Prak.
“Officers will be out conducting traffic enforcement all summer long, removing unsafe drivers, and issuing violation tickets when appropriate.”
