On July 19 the Oak Bay Police conducted a roadblock. Police handed out four violation tickets for failure to produce a driver’s licence and failure to display an ‘N’ sign, one notice and order for no side view mirror, along with issuing a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition which includes a 30-day vehicle impoundment.

Police are reminding drivers that it is illegal and dangerous to travel with an unsecured pet in the exterior of a truck. If you must transport your pet in the back of a truck, the safest method is in a secured crate in the centre of your truck box.

They are also issuing a reminder to pet owners that they can be fined $368 for driving ‘without due care and attention’ if a pet is in the front seat of a car or if they become a distraction from the back seat.

Once again, police are reminding drivers to not leave dogs in cars and are encouraging pet owners to carry a pet first-aid kit, as well as researching information about nearby veterinary practices in places you’re visiting.
