VIEWPOINT - Wasting my Time
This 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.
Without going into detail I can say she deserved to be charged, one day she will cause an accident if her driving habits don't change.
The constable said to me this is not your first complaint making it sound like I do this daily. I have made three complaints in the last year and they make it sound as though I do it to often. My remark to him was if I had the time I could write up many complaints about people breaking the traffic laws every time I left home.
What I see is this province does not have enough RCMP on traffic, and as you well know we need it.
I am willing to go to court and I know it takes up time in the courts and could also take months before it goes to court, but the other alternative is to turn a blind eye and say nothing. This will be the last time I waste my time making out a detailed statement only to have some young constable tell me more or less I am wasting my time.
