The Creston RCMP are requesting assistance to identify two suspects involved in dangerous operation of motor vehicles and flight from police.
On April 9 at approximately 11:30 p.m, the RCMP received a report of two all-terrain vehicles (ATV) driving at high rates of speed in the area of Canyon Street and 16 Avenue North.
When police attempted a vehicle stop, they fled the scene at a high rate of speed. One ATV was red, the other was dark in colour with a bright headlamp.
To report any information on this incident, please contact Const. Curtis Davies of the Creston RCMP detachment at 250-428-9313.
Off-road vehicles (ORV) are designed for off-highway use only and does not meet safety standards for on-highway use.
In order to operate an off-road vehicle on Crown land and resource roads, the owner must have registration, a licence, a licence plate on display, and insurance. Helmets are also mandatory.
OVR operation on a highway is limited to these parameters:
• Perpendicular highway crossing at a controlled intersection (stop sign or traffic light)
• Being loaded/unloaded to or from another vehicle in a parking lot
• In accordance with a police operation permit
The RCMP has the ability to stop, inspect, and seize ORVs (when appropriate). Fines for violations are $230 for an unregistered ORV and $368 for careless operation or damage to property.
