Thought of the day
Despite what the majority of our clientele state when we are putting them into handcuffs for whatever crime they’ve committed, we are an intelligent bunch of coppers and think critically (with an investigative bent) every day.
The thought of the day for this edition of our blog is this:
Due to our communities having a nexus of highways, we see a lot of non-local traffic coming through and receive multiple reports daily of drivers who are not following the rules of the road, are driving erratically, or are driving in a way that is just flat-out dangerous.
This is not a problem that is unique to our area – wherever there are roads, there will be disrespectful drivers – but we see a disproportionate amount of these calls because of the non-local traffic.
We, as police, can’t always intercept these drivers when they are on the road, but we will always follow up with the registered owner (and sometimes issue a ticket to the registered owner) if we are able to identify the vehicle. With that in mind, we encourage everyone who witnesses one of these disrespectful or dangerous drivers to call us and to always have in your mind to provide these three details:
- The license plate number
- The colour of the vehicle
- The make of the vehicle
With those three pieces of information, we will have the ability to at least follow-up with the vehicle owner and attempt to identify who was driving.
Have fun and be safe,
Cst. Richard Wright
