North Battleford CSOs issue immediate impoundments, licence suspension following traffic stop in school zone

A driver with a lengthy history of driving offenses is facing another slew of fines, fees, and two vehicle impoundment orders under the Traffic Safety Act following a stop initiated by a North Battleford Community Safety Officer (CSO).            

CSOs were conducting proactive traffic patrols by McKitrick School on 15th Ave and 101st Street at approximately 9:30am on Tuesday when the officer observed a white older vehicle fail to stop at the 4-way stop of this intersection. The officer stopped the vehicle, administered a roadside alcohol screening test (ASD), and the driver was found to have alcohol in their body, but at a level below the limit of legal impairment. The driver, a 39 year old male, admitted to consuming alcohol late Monday night and empty alcohol beverage containers were recovered by CSOs in the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop, within reach of the driver.

An immediate 7-day vehicle impoundment and 120-day driver licence suspension were issued. This was the driver’s second provincial roadside ASD suspension, the last one having been issued in December 2022.     

During this traffic stop, CSOs determined the driver has not had a valid driver licence within the last five years. The driver was served with a mandatory summons to appear in court for being an unauthorized driver. This offense carries another 30-day vehicle impoundment. A warning for the driver’s failure to stop at a 4-Way Stop was also issued by CSOs.                

This driver has been the subject of six previous driver licence suspensions and was charged under the Criminal Code of Canada for Dangerous Driving Causing Death in 2002.
