Valentine's spot check leads to about 20 charges, violations

Roses are red, violets are blue, and so are police lights!

There were some unhappy spouses Thursday night after their Valentines out was abruptly interrupted by a police spot check.

RCMP Cpl. John Stoddart told News 95.7, a three-hour spot check near the Bedford exchange from 9 p.m. until midnight led to what he calls a surprisingly large number of roadside tests.

“There were actually 44, in which police issued two seven-day suspensions, one 30-day suspension and they also charged two revoked drivers,” said Stoddart.

There were also motor vehicle inspection violations, six insurance charges, one case of expired registration and a couple of drug seizures.
