RCMP Report: Early morning theft of a snowmobile

Braking isn’t easy

2013-03-26

Police were alerted to an incident whereby two semi tractor trailer units failed to stop at the regulatory bake check location at 10 mile east of Golden. Although some highway brake checks are voluntary, those posted in black lettering with white backing are mandatory checks, and are there to ensure the safety of the motoring public. Tractor trailer units are more susceptible to brake failure just by the nature of their designed purpose of hauling heavy product back and forth on our roads. These mandatory checks are situated near the crest of steeper inclined portions of the highway to ensure the vehicle brakes are properly functioning to safely negotiate the hill.  Golden RCMP and SE Traffic Services located the two units in Golden, and the drivers were issued violations tickets for the infraction.

Police stopped a vehicle that had failed to stop at a stop sign. The driver exhibited signs of having consumed alcohol and was made to provide a sample for analysis. The driver, from Alberta, failed two roadside screening devices and, as a result, lost his driver’s license for three months and had his vehicle impounded for 30 days.
