Sunshine Coast RCMP say January and February were unusually busy for traffic offenses, including drunk driving.
In his regular report to the Policing Committee, Staff Sergeant Herb Berdahl noted the detachment had 221 traffic related calls in the first two months of the year. That’s about 18 per cent of the total.
Those traffic calls led to 18 drunk driving suspensions and 1 charge for being on drugs behind the wheel. RCMP also made a big marijuana bust after pulling over a speeding driver.
