RCMP con­duct ATV pa­trol

The Compass - - SPORTS -

In the wake of an ap­par­ent in­crease in il­le­gal all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tion on road­ways, the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP con­ducted a con­cen­trated pa­trol on Sept. 4.

The pa­trol ex­tended from Marys­vale to Bay de Verde.

Sev­eral charges were laid, rang­ing from op­er­at­ing an ATV on a road­way to al­low­ing a per­son un­der 16 years-of-age to op­er­ate an ATV.

Po­lice re­ported that sev­eral ve­hi­cles checked were be­ing op­er­ated in ac­cor­dance with the rules and reg­u­la­tions pro­vided in the Mo­tor­ized Snow Ve­hi­cles and All-Ter­rain Ve­hi­cles Act.

Sim­i­lar pa­trols will be con­ducted in the near fu­ture, say po­lice.

This ini­tia­tive is part of on­go­ing ef­forts by the RCMP to re­duce the num­ber of ATV ac­ci­dents and in­frac­tions and keep­ing com­mu­ni­ties safe.
