Campbell River RCMP recommend drug-impaired driving charges against 53-year-old man

Campbell river RCMP are recommending charges of drug-impaired driving against a 53-year-old man.

RCMP say they were contacted Tuesday about a black Honda Civic that drove through a red light at Maple Street and 16th Avenue and then drove up on a curb.

Police then received multiple calls about the same car sideswiping several vehicles before stopping on 16th Avenue.

A drug recognition expert concluded that the driver was impaired after an investigation.

“It’s so important to acknowledge the successes that policing achieves with the community’s assistance,” said Campbell River RCMP Cst. Maury Tyre in a news release.

“One of the big messages we’ve really been trying to convey in the community is how important the eyes and ears of the citizens are in making a safer home for us all. We’d really like to thank everyone in the community that has become involved in efforts to make Campbell River safer.”
