Traffic checks were conducted over two days in February in the Fort St. James area.

In total there were 56 commercial vehicles that were inspected resulting in 23 units that had various motor vehicle act deficiencies and 15 of those being put out of service until the deficiencies were repaired.

A large number of non commercial vehicles were also checked resulting in 16 Motor Vehicle Act violation tickets being issued.

One driver was also arrested under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act after he was found to be in possession of a small amount of marihuana.

The driver was issued a 24 hour driving suspension after a Standardized Field Sobriety Test was conducted.

Although it was very cold, the road check was a success.

It is anticipated that there will be more combined enforcement road checks in the near future.
