Steinbach RCMP impound two motorcycles in relation to high-risk driving incidents

Steinbach, Manitoba – On May 11, 2018, at approximately 9:00 pm, Steinbach RCMP were on patrol when they caught a motorcyclist travelling at 202 km/hr in a 100 km/hr zone on Highway 52 between Labroquerie and Steinbach in the RM of Labroquerie.

Officers fined the 21-year-old male driver from Steinbach $1385. He was issued a Serious Offence Notice, and had his driver’s licence and his motorcycle seized.

Close to two hours later, Steinbach RCMP saw a motorcyclist fail to stop at a stop sign in the City of Steinbach. The driver continued through the stop sign, weaved in and out of traffic, and failed to stop at a red light at Highway 12 and Loewen Boulevard. He then failed to stop at another stop sign on Giesbrecht Street. The driver stopped at Ellice Avenue and Giesbrecht Street, where RCMP were patiently waiting for him.

The 20-year-old male resident of Steinbach was charged with Drive Imprudently, Fail to Stop, Drive Carelessly, Drive Unregistered Motorcycle, Driving with an Invalid Licence. A Serious Offence Notice was issued, and his licence and motorcycle were seized.

Road safety is a priority for the RCMP in Manitoba. We will continue to target high-risk driving behaviours. Our goal is to have safe roads so everyone can get home.
