Over the past couple of weeks, the West Shore RCMP Municipal Traffic Unit has worked with ICBC to target speeders on the West Shore.
“You may have seen our Traffic Section conducting targeted speed enforcement in high traffic areas,” said Cst. Jon McKinney, west Shore RCMP Traffic Services Unit.
“ICBC has also taken part in this initiative by setting up speed boards and educating drivers on speed limits in areas that tend to generate speeding complaints from the public. We have issued a variety of violation tickets in the past two weeks and have come across several vehicles that were defective and needed to be taken off the roadway due to safety concerns. Traffic education and enforcement is important because it reminds drivers to slow down and respect other motorists sharing the roadways.”
Speeding and aggressive driving are amongst the top driving complaints the West Shore RCMP receives daily from the public. The West Shore RCMP is committed to keeping our roads safe and will continue our efforts to bolster traffic safety. To report a driving complaint (not in progress), use our new online crime reporting tool found on the West Shore RCMP website.
