Crime of the Week: Impaired operation of ATVs
Crime Stoppers, law enforcement agencies, and the New Brunswick ATV Federation would like to remind the public that it is illegal to operate all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) while impaired.
Drinking and driving is against the law and the same rules apply when operating an ATV.
“Speed and alcohol are a deadly combination,” says Sgt. Tammy Ward of N.B. Crime Stoppers. “It is important for all operators to use their ATVs in a safe, responsible manner. Tragedies can be prevented by not letting anyone operate a machine under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”
If you have any information concerning the unlawful operation of an ATV and wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. If your information leads to an arrest, you could qualify for a cash award of up to $2,000.
