Some help­ful tips

Win­ter is fi­nally here. If you have not done so now is the time to ad­just your driv­ing. With the re­cent snow fall and more in the fore­cast, our roads will be icy and slip­pery for the next few months. Here are some safe win­ter driv­ing tips;

• All sea­son tires are not ef­fec­tive be­low seven de­grees Cel­sius. Only win­ter tires are rec­om­mended for win­ter weather. In fact, four win­ter tires must be on your ve­hi­cle. Mix­ing or match­ing tires ad­versely af­fects the han­dling of your ve­hi­cle.

• Slow down and ad­just your speed in the win­ter. Just be­cause the roads look good does not mean they are. Ice and snow drifts are al­ways haz­ardous and can not al­ways be ac­counted for on those good driv­ing days.

• Charged a 19 year old fe­male from Vic­to­ria with fraud af­ter she cashed two cheques that did not be­long to her. The com­plaint was re­ceived from the Bank of Nova Sco­tia in Car­bon­ear af­ter the owner of the cheques no­ticed money miss­ing from their ac­count. Court is pend­ing on the mat­ter.

• Re­sponded to a call of a dis­tur­bance in Ge­orge­town. A 35 year old woman from Ge­orge­town was later ar­rested and charged with a breach of un­der­tak­ing for be­ing at a res­i­dence. The woman was later re­leased by the court on an­other un­der­tak­ing and is due back in court Feb. 21.

• Re­sponded to a call of break and en­ter in Broad Cove. An el­derly woman heard some­one in the res­i­dence and af­ter check­ing dis­cov­ered a sum of money miss­ing. The sus­pect(s) had left the area and the mat­ter is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

• Re­sponded to a com­plaint of dam­age to a ve­hi­cle at the Cana­dian Food In­spec­tion Agency in Clarke’s Beach. Some­time overnight some­one had re­moved four tires and rims and drilled the gas tank, re­mov­ing the gaso­line. The mat­ter is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

• Re­sponded to a Dog Act com­plaint in Cupids. A com­plaint was re­ceived about a roam­ing dog in this par­tic­u­lar in­ci­dent the an­i­mal al­most caused a mo­tor ve­hi­cle col­li­sion. The owner was spo­ken to and the mat­ter is con­cluded. Pet own­ers are re­minded that you are re­spon­si­ble for pen­ning or teth­er­ing your an­i­mals at all times. If they should be deemed a nui­sance an­i­mal they can be seized and de­stroyed.
