RCMP warns winter driving conditions have arrived

Fairly quiet Halloween for 100 Mile House RCMP, but focus on drinking drivers

100 Mile House RCMP responded to 54 complaints and calls for service during the past week.

Traffic collisions

100 Mile House RCMP members responded to seven traffic collisions.

Speed and deteriorating road conditions were contributing factors in most incidents, according to the police.

100 Mile RCMP are again reminding the public that winter driving conditions have arrived and drivers are urged to slow down in response to these conditions.

Roadside prohibition

On Nov. 4 at 1:05 a.m., a truck was stopped on Birch Avenue because no taillights were working on the vehicle.

The driver admitted to consuming alcohol and a roadside approved screening device was administered and the driver blew a warning.

A three-day immediate roadside prohibition was issued to the driver.

Drinking driver nabbed

On Oct. 30 at 9:10 p.m., 100 Mile RCMP conducted a roadside check on Horse Lake Road near Blackstock Road.

Approximately 50 vehicles were checked, and three drivers were given roadside tests for alcohol consumption.

One driver was issued a three-day immediate roadside prohibition due to the test results.

Quiet Halloween

The RCMP report a very quiet Halloween this year.

No reports of any damage to property were received by the detachment.
