Temper, you’re driving

On October 20, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. a frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officer was conducting routine patrol in a marked vehicle when she observed a 39-year-old Edmonton man and his vehicle allegedly travelling over 80 km/h in a 60 km/h posted speed zone on Highway 3B, in Trail, BC. The officer observed the driver allegedly cut off another motorist while conducting a lane change. The officer detained the man and his vehicle roadside. The officer noted that the man was very upset about being detained. He refused to produce his driver’s licence to the officer and rolled up his window. Additional officers attended the scene, including BC Highway Patrol, to aid the officer in maintaining public safety.

Due to the man’s odd behaviour, the officer believed the man’s ability to operate a motor vehicle may be impaired by alcohol. A mandatory breath demand was read to the man. The man responded by plugging his ears and yelling over officer’s instructions. BC Highway Patrol RCMP officer assisted the investigating officer by stepping in and convincing the man to comply with the demand. The man did so after approximately 20 minutes of conversation and provided a sample of breath roadside that resulted in a pass.

The Trail RCMP officer issued the 39-year-old Edmonton man a $138 fine for Speed against highway sign contrary to Section 146(3) of the BC Motor Vehicle Act.

Nah nah nah I can’t hear you is not a legitimate defense. We would like to thank our BC Highway Patrol officer for assisting us with this difficult client with his expertise, as they experience these kinds of roadside challenges daily. Says Sgt. Wicentowich
