Salmon Arm  

Busy but safe weekend

While there were dozens of calls over the long weekend, Salmon Arm RCMP said it was relatively quiet.

It was a busy weekend in the area with Salmon Arm RCMP responding to over 92 calls for service, said RCMP Staff Sgt. Scott West.

"One vehicle was impounded for excessive speed on Aug. 5," West said. "The vehicle was travelling west on the Trans Canada Highway in the Carlin area. The officer obtained a speed that is alleged to have been 49 km/h over the posted 100 km/h regulatory sign. The driver was issued a violation ticket for excessive speed and the vehicle was impounded for the legislated seven days."

Local RCMP officers also conducted an impaired driving check stop in Canoe near the park and ball diamonds on Aug. 4 in the afternoon.

"Officers checked over 30 vehicles and did not detect any impaired drivers. Just a reminder and thank you for driving sober. It appears people were doing that in that area on Aug. 4," West said.
