PHOTOS: RCMP cracks down on bad driving habits in Maple Ridge

The Messages in Motion campaign had volunteers and officers out on Sept. 20

With school now back in session and more people on the road, Ridge Meadows RCMP have been ramping up their street patrols in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to help ensure that drivers are being safe.

During last week’s proactive patrols, the Crime Reduction Unit was able to identify four prohibited drivers in Maple Ridge.

All four drivers were charged with driving while prohibited and had their vehicles impounded.

Ridge Meadows RCMP have also been doing their Messages in Motion campaign, which involves officers and volunteers walking through popular local intersections while carrying signs reminding drivers to pay attention to the road.
