Re­minders

Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­mind the pub­lic that un­der the All Ter­rain Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle and Snow Mo­bile Act, ATVs and snow­mo­biles are not per­mit­ted to be op­er­ated on the road­ways.

Please do not abuse th­ese reg­u­la­tions, as they are there to keep the ma­chine op­er­a­tors and pub­lic safe.

We can also see from this week’s re­port, im­paired driv­ers con­tinue to be ap­pre­hended by po­lice.

If you con­sume al­co­hol and make the poor de­ci­sion to drive a ve­hi­cle, not only are you com­mit­ting a crim­i­nal of­fence, you are risk­ing your life and the life of oth­ers.
