Project Gandolf nets 30 drivers in 2 hours in Pitt Meadows

Violation tickets handed out at problematic intersection

In a little more than two hours police issued 30 violation tickets in a Pitt Meadows blitz to catch drivers not following the rules of the road.

Over three days the Pitt Meadows Uniformed Community Response Team, UCRU, and frontline police set up at Ford Road and Baynes Road intersection for what they termed “Project Gandolf – you shall not pass”.

The intersection is one of many problem intersections in the cities of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, said Sgt. Lyndsay Irwin with the Ridge Meadows RCMP detachment.

“We will be continuing enforcement with zero tolerance at problematic intersections,” she added.

Project Gandolf is ongoing and will be enforced for varying infractions every week in different areas of Pitt Meadows.
