Stephenville, Newfoundland and Labrador – A 38-year-old Stephenville man was stopped for operating an ATV on a roadway. He was found to have no insurance, no licence plate, was not wearing a helmet and had $7500 in outstanding fines. He was issued a notice to appear in court in August, 2021, to answer to the charges.
Later that same day, an older model SUV was stopped. The vehicle was uninsured. The driver, a 42-year-old Port au Port man, was issued a ticket for having no insurance and the vehicle was seized and impounded.
Six drivers were charged for speeding, one driver was charged for not wearing a seatbelt and a number of vehicles were issued tickets for other traffic violations. Seven drivers were issued notices for vehicle inspections as their vehicles were suspected to have modifications that were not within the provincial standards for street operation.
RCMP Traffic Services remind drivers that vehicles must conform to the safety standards set out by the Province and prior to modifying a vehicle the owner should determine if planned modifications meet safety regulations laid out in the Cars, Light Trucks and Vans Inspection Methods and Standards.
RCMP NL continues to fulfill its mandate to protect public safety, enforce the law, and ensure the delivery of priority policing services in Newfoundland and Labrador.
