KAMLOOPS - Two routes notorious for speeders were the site of an RCMP enforcement project which saw 40 speeding drivers ticketed last week.
Kamloops RCMP took to Halston Avenue and Westsyde Road Friday, April 29, to crack down on speeders. In total 55 charges and four warnings were issued, RCMP say in a media release.
On Halston Avenue officers issued tickets for 27 speed violations and one excessive speed charge for a driver going 118 kilometres per hour in a 70 km/h zone. Several other charges were issued as well.
On Westsyde Road another 11 speeding violations were charged and another excessive speeder was caught going 100 km/h, double the posted speed limit. Among the miscellaneous other charges were two for using an electronic device behind the wheel.
RCMP officers will be performing other enforcement projects, including ones for speeding, impaired driving and distracted driving, Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in the release.
