Carload results in multiple tickets

A standard road check in Armstrong kept police busy.

On Sunday at 12:07 p.m., an officer was conducting a seatbelt inspection on Smith Drive when a Honda Civic was pulled over with three people inside.

“Each one was issued a ticket of some form,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

One of the passengers was issued a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt while a computer check determined ICBC wanted the 25-year-old male driver served for a four-month driving prohibition.

On top of this, the police officer was concerned about the physical condition of the vehicle so an inspection order was issued to the registered owner who was a passenger.

“This means he needs to get the vehicle fixed and inspected before driving it again,” said Molendyk.

RCMP send a message

Motorists are being warned that winter is not over.

During snowfall Feb. 20, Vernon RCMP officers responded to several accidents where motorists were not driving in relation to road conditions or they had inadequate tires.

“We will still get quick snowfalls and conditions will be slippery,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

“Winter is not over until the end of March.”

Some motorists did not have proper snow tires on their vehicles or all-season tires that had poor tread.
