Parking lot fender bender

26-04-2013

RCMP responded to a minor motor vehicle accident in the Tim Horton’s parking lot. No one was injured in the accident. The people involved exchanged insurance information and were sent on their way. Drivers are reminded to take caution in parking lots as many incidents like this happen as things get busier in town.

IRP issued

29-04-2013

RCMP issued a three-day road suspension under the Immediate Roadside Prohibitions (IRP) to a driver in the area. The three-day driving prohibition is issued if it is the first time caught in the warning range.

Bike disappears and then returns

30-04-2013

There was a report of a stolen bicycle from the youth centre in downtown Golden. RCMP searched the area and did not locate the bike. However the bike reappeared at the centre about an hour after it disappeared. The RCMP would like to remind everyone that you can not just take someone’s bike without the person’s permission. If you do remove someone’s bike (or anything else) without permission it is considered theft.

ADP issued

1-05-2013

RCMP issued a 90-day Administrative Driving Prohibition (ADP) along with a 30-day impoundment of the driver’s vehicle.

 

Animals cause highways issues

There were four incidents involving vehicle accidents of the Trans Canada Highway. Three of the incidents directly involved animals.

Two of the accidents involved vehicles coming into contact with animals. In both incidents there were no serious injuries to the people in the vehicles and only minor damage to report.

In the third incident a person swerved to avoid hitting a moose.

The vehicle went off of the highway and ended up going into a ditch. No one was seriously injured in the incidents.

Drivers are reminded to take care driving on the highways around Golden as these types of incidents are common.

In the other incident a tractor trailer went off the right hand side of the highway. Once again no one was hurt in the accident.
