Traffic delays can be frustrating for everyone, but on July 3 one driver’s impatience got the best of them.
Earlier this month, a traffic control flagger was nearly struck at a construction site on Bowker Avenue after a vehicle ignored the flagger’s instructions indicating the road was closed and drove on the sidewalk. According to Oak Bay Police Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties, that’s when the flagger was almost hit.
Following the incident, an investigation was launched into a suspected vehicle and the dangerous driver.
Early Friday morning, Oak Bay Police released an update. The driver was found on Thursday and received a $196 ticket and three demerit points.
If you see a flagger or public works employee, etc on the road, please slow down. They're someone's daughter or son, mother or father, etc. Not only can you get a ticket but if your driving is dangerous or negligent, you could get a criminal record.🚔Driving respectfully is easy. pic.twitter.com/7Iyh7u4wrM
