Drunk driver

On June 14, Cariboo-Chilcotin Traffic Services stopped a vehicle for not having proper insurance. The male driver displayed symptoms of liquor consumption. An approved screening device was used at the scene and the result was a ‘fail.’ A second test was administered with the same result. Police issued the driver a 90-day immediate roadside driving prohibition. His vehicle was towed and impounded for 30 days.

Single vehicle collision

On June 13, police and emergency crews were called to a single vehicle collision on Highway 97 near Davis Lake Road. The male driver of a Dodge pick-up lost control during a storm and went into the ditch, rolling at least two times. The air ambulance attended and air-lifted the single occupant to Royal Inland Hospital with serious injuries. The investigation into the cause of this collision is continuing.

Motor Fuel Tax Act

On June 13, Cariboo-Chilcotin Traffic Services assisted commercial vehicle inspectors and the Ministry of Finance targeting the use of marked fuel in commercial and passenger vehicles. Thirty vehicles were checked throughout the day. Approximately 1/3 of those vehicles were determined to be in contravention of the Motor Fuel Tax Act by using illegal coloured fuel. A number of charges were laid under the Act.
