Police called to a road conflict

Police received two driving complaints on Nov.16. The operators of the two vehicles were reporting each other. 

A semi unit and passenger car were in the merge lane of the highway not allowing the other to merge. The passenger car followed the semi unit and the drivers of both vehicles got into an exchange once the vehicles were parked. One of the drivers struck the window of the other driver’s vehicle. One of the drivers was issued a ticket for driving without reasonable consideration.

Police also responded to a motor vehicle accident with no injuries. One of the vehicles stopped to turn left and the second vehicle struck the first from behind. The driver was issued a ticket for following too close.

The same day members attended to a couple of noise complaints during the course of the evening. One homeowner was given a warning about a noisy party and subsequently shut it down. A second homeowner was charged under the bylaw for creating a noise that disturbed others.

Officers then went to a local establishment on a report of an altercation that was taking place. When police arrived on the scene, there were several accounts as to what took place. The matter is now under investigation.
