Q&A - Unhappy With Driving Complaint Resolution
I recently reported a reckless truck driver to the RCMP, they are writing up a ticket but giving it to the trucking company who is the registered owner of the truck and not the driver. The registered owner indentified the driver but still the Officer said the ticket has to go to the registered owner. Does this sound right to you?
This is was I was originally told - ""I spoke with XXXXXXX today and was advised that the driver in question has not been complained about before, so I verbally warned the company (as they would have been the ones to pay as the registered owner of the vehicle). The owner is going to speak with the driver as they don't want to have any further issues.""
That was not good enough for me and I insisted I wanted the driver charged and then they told me this "I have written up a ticket and while the driver information was provided to me, the ticket goes to the registered owner of the vehicle. The ticket and file have been forwarded to a supervisor and they will forward it to the town the company's headquarters is in to be served."
After pushing it they did issue a ticket to the registered owner - The ticket issued is for Drive without consideration (MVA 144(1)(b)). Not sure what that means?
