The Tr i n i ty Con­cep­tion RCMP an­swered 101 calls for ser­vice dur­ing the week of Dec. 7-13. The fol­low­ing is a snapshot of sev­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tions over the last week which high­lights the na­ture of some calls we re­ceived and iden­ti­fies in­ci­dents that the pub­lic can pos­si­bly help us with by pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion.

• At­tended a two ve­hi­cle mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on the Main Road in Bay Roberts. No in­juries were in­volved, how­ever, the driver of one of the ve­hi­cles was is­sued a traf­fic sum­mons for fail­ure to yield right-ofway.

Some help­ful tips

• Traf­fic com­plaints — we have re­ceived nu­mer­ous com­plaints of ve­hi­cles in fire lanes and hand­i­cap zones through­out the malls in the Trinity Con­cep­tion District.

We have done our best to be fes­tive and ask­ing peo­ple to move their ve­hi­cles when we drive through, but it has not al­ways worked and sev­eral traf­fic tick­ets have been is­sued. As we get closer to the Christ­mas rush, the com­plaints be­come more fre­quent, es­pe­cially when your nerves get stepped on as the pres­sure mounts dur­ing the sea­son.

Just be­cause you are sit­ting in your car does not mean you can park or stop in the fire lane.

We ask that ev­ery­one please re­spect the fire lanes and hand­i­cap zones. It only takes a sec­ond to run into the store. It also only takes a sec­ond to write up a traf­fic sum­mons. I am sure the money is bet­ter in your pocket this hol­i­day sea­son.
