Keep your vehicles ship shape, warn Comox Valley RCMP

The Comox Valley RCMP will make an extra effort to ensure that vehicle owners are properly maintaining their vehicles before driving.

The Comox Valley RCMP will make an extra effort in the coming weeks to ensure that vehicle owners are properly maintaining their vehicles before driving on our streets.

With the warmer weather upon us, these are some frequent infractions with regards to vehicle maintenance being observed in the Comox Valley area:

• Vehicles, such as Jeeps, being driven without doors attached;

• Trailers with no plates or insurance, also trailers with defective lights;

• Damaged windshields from winter debris;

• Improperly displayed or illegible licence plates;

• Illegal window tint.

Our officers will ensure compliance to these provincial laws in a variety of ways.

Some with a warning, which may include further follow-up, others with a violation ticket, up to $598 for some offences.

While others may require the immediate removal of the vehicle from our streets.

Vehicle owners are responsible for their vehicles’ upkeep and play a huge role in keeping our streets safe.
