Lloydminster RCMP cracks down on dangerous drivers

Lloydminster RCMP had received more than 20 calls regarding dangerous driving, excessive noise and littering in the area of the Sports Centre

LLOYDMINSTER – Lloydminster RCMP ticketed dozens of drivers in a two-day traffic operation.

Lloydminster RCMP say they, along with Lloydminster RCMP Crime Reduction Unit and the City of Lloydminster Bylaw Enforcement, conducted a traffic operation on Aug. 23 - 24 after getting complaints from citizens over the past several months. They received more than 20 calls regarding dangerous driving, excessive noise and littering in the area of the Sports Centre.

The Lloydminster RCMP said they tried dealing with this behaviour with conventional education in the past but several dangerous vehicle-related incidents caused the escalation in enforcement.     

During the traffic operation, Lloydminster RCMP issued: 28 violation tickets, five warnings, one vehicle was towed, one bylaw ticket for public urinating, and one alcohol-relate driver’s licence suspension under the Alberta Immediate Roadside Sanctions program. The Lloydminster RCMP would like to advise the public that future enforcement will continue to ensure safe roads and a safe community.
