Two roadside prohibitions in two days

Agassiz RCMP take two drunk drivers off road for 90 days

Two drivers have been issued roadside prohibitions this week in Agassiz and Harrison.

The first incident happened on Sunday, when a vehicle lost control at Striker’s Corner on Hot Springs Road.

Witnesses helped the male driver out of the vehicle prior to RCMP arriving on scene. RCMP report that the driver was taken into custody for driving while disqualified, and was also handed a 90 day roadside prohibition for impaired driving.

On Monday night, Hot Springs Road was closed while RCMP dealt with a hit and run.

Witnesses in that case obtained a license plate number, and the suspect’s vehicle was later found by police.

RCMP report that the driver was charged with failing to remain at the scene, and issued a 90 day roadside prohibition for impaired driving.
