Driver grounded

On June 13, 100 Mile House RCMP Traffic Services members were conducting speed enforcement near Lone Butte on Highway 24.

A vehicle was clocked on radar travelling 35 km/h over the posted limit and was stopped. During the course of the traffic violation investigation, the officer noted signs and symptoms of liquor impairment from the driver. He was subsequently given a roadside breath test during which he blew a “warn.”

The driver was issued a three-day IRP, as well as a violation ticket for speed and for not possessing a driver’s licence. The vehicle was towed from the scene due to mechanical issues.
