VIEWPOINT - Wasting my Time

SoapboxThis AM I submitted a drivers complaint to the local RCMP with a statement and diagrams showing where the incident took place. Well, they called me back telling me they had contacted the driver re the complaint and decided to give her a warning as she did have a clean driving record, and the constable said she apologized.

My thought was she had a clean driving record, probably because she has not been caught.

Q&A - Novice Driver Crashes, Then Drinks and is Suspended by Police

Q&A ImageI have a question and after reading some of your articles, you may be the one to clarify this for me. My son, who is a novice driver in GLP of BC, was in an accident here on Vancouver Island. He was the only one involved, going into the ditch but sustained a large 2" gash on his chin, right down to the bone.

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 - Failure to stop at a stop sign.

Q&A ImageOver a year ago, my husband came to pick me up after work a little after 11 pm.  We live in a town of 20,000 people and it was a wed night, traffic is not very busy at the worst of times. He pulled into the left turn lane, saw nobody coming in from any direction and then instead of coming to a complete stop, sort of rolled to an almost stop and then kept going. 

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?
