RCMP Report: Very expensive drinks

On Saturday, Oct. 15, Clearwater RCMP stopped vehicle and deemed the male driver impaired by alcohol. The driver was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition (IRP) and the vehicle was impounded for seven days.

Police remind the public that the estimated costs of receiving a 90-day IRP suspension is over $4,000.

 

Traveling at excessive speed

On Oct. 24, Clearwater RCMP stopped a northbound vehicle near Blackpool for speeding. The vehicle was traveling in excess of 40 km/h over the posted speed limit. The driver was issued a $368 fine and the vehicle was impounded for seven days.

 

Twice the posted speed

On October 28, Traffic Services stationed in Clearwater stopped a southbound vehicle for speeding just north of Clearwater. The vehicle’s speed was double the posted speed limit.

The driver was issued a $483 ticket and the vehicle was impounded for seven days. Also found was drug paraphernalia, which was seized; no charge forwarded.

 

Drive for road conditions

Clearwater RCMP remind the public it’s that time of year for adverse driving conditions. The falling temperatures at night, along with fog and moisture on the highway are a great recipe for black ice.

Please drive according to road conditions. The posted speed limit is a MAXIMUM on ideal conditions, ie dry roads and clear visibility.

 

Police have busy week

Clearwater RCMP responded to numerous calls this past week, ranging from traffic complaints, suspicious occurrences, animal calls, and disturbances to individuals turning in firearms for destruction.
