OPINION - Traffic Policing is Important for Safe Neighbourhoods

Blue Line LogoIn some municipalities firefighters are attending collisions instead of the police. I've never felt comfortable with this decision for a number of reasons but even our government has joined in by removing the requirement to report collisions to the police.

Q&A - Does Driving Without Insurance Mean an Immediate Impound?

Ticket WriterWhen a person is stopped for no insurance in BC, no matter where, is the car immediately impounded? Are there any exemptions? The reason I asked is: my employee said he got stopped for expired plates on the car he was driving, but the RCMP officer in Courtenay told him just to park it, even though the ICBC insurance had expired a week earlier.

Q&A - Requesting Speed Enforcement

Q&A ImageI've been living in the Armstrong Elementary school area for the last 1.5 years and I have never seen any speed traps to enforce the school zone speed limit. It beginning to feel like I'm the only one who knows the speed limit is 30 km/h in the school zone.

My question is, would you happen to know if its as simple as calling the RCMP and suggesting to them this be a place to set up a speed trap?

VIEWPOINT - Traffic Policing Priorities in Port Alice

SoapboxThe disposal of beer cans and bottles out of vehicle windows along the twenty mile stretch of road between the main highway cut off and the Port Alice mill is not only a sad commentary about the local transient population, but it also means that an immense amount of drinking and driving has been going on. This has been occurring for many years with no attempt at correction.

Q&A - CVSE Authority

Ticket WriterDo Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE) officers have the authority to pull over and ticket non-commercial vehicles for traffic violations such as speeding or running a stop sign?

Investigating Personation

Ticket WriterIt was always a challenge when the violator failed to produce their driver's license. Were they being truthful when they told me that they had forgotten it at home? Did the name, address and birth date that they gave me belong to someone else? That honest face was occasionally nothing more than window dressing.

VIEWPOINT - Police Should Fight Crime

SoapboxFirst off no disrespect to any police I have a problem when day in day out police are pulling people over for traffic violations and road blocks etc but there are so much crime going on in B.C city's and town's and not to mention police corruption and getting caught for what ever it might be petty or not but we as tax payers pay large amounts of money each year to keep us all safe and for the R.C.M.P up hold the law's but I have y

Q&A - The Officer Didn't See the Offence

Q&A ImageI am curious how is it that it is possible for an officer to issue a ticket without actually witnessing the alleged offense, and only going by a couple of witness calls that likely do not have the plate number of the alleged offender and in a location that is not specific?

Q&A - Publicising Speeding Enforcement

Q&A ImageWhy are radar locations are allowed to be broadcast on the radio road reports? I have seen, so many times, people drive slow where they know radar is, only to start speeding once they get past them. Isn't the idea of radar to catch the speeders?

Q&A - Trouble With the Towing Company

Q&A ImageI was given a 24 hour Driving Prohibition in Richmond BC in December 2009. When I called the tow company after 24 hours to get their address, I was told that there was a police hold on the Vehicle. This so called hold carried on until I contacted the RCMP Officer who had issued me the 24 Hr Suspension.
