To ensure everyone can enjoy the trail system safely, Bay St. George RCMP will conduct patrols throughout the 2019 season.
Officers will be equipped with alcohol-screening devices and will be checking for alcohol and drug impairment
Police will also enforce laws surrounding trail passes and all other applicable legislation.
New legislation effective since Dec. 18, 2018 has provided police in Canada the authority to demand mandatory breath samples from anyone operating a motor vehicle, which includes snowmobiles.
Under the All-Terrain/Motorized Snowmobile Vehicles Act, alcohol impairment on a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is zero-tolerance meaning a person cannot have any alcohol in their blood while driving.
If found impaired, the driver’s snowmobile or ATV will be impounded for up to 30 days and that person will be charged criminally.
Bay St George RCMP wish all riders an enjoyable and safe 2019 riding season.
