Red Deer City Integrated Traffic Service will crack down on motorists whose vehicles have equipment that violates the law starting June 24. Police note a marked increase in these type of violations, which are chargeable offences.
RCMP and Community Peace Officers will remove vehicles from roadways if they are deemed to have illegal equipment.
Police will pay special attention to vehicles with tinted head and tail light; window tint on the windshield and front driver and passenger side windows; as well as vehicles that have been modified to raise or lower headlights.
The vehicle license plate will be seized until a peace officer is satisfied it complies with the Vehicle Equipment Regulation in section 66(4) of the Traffic Safety Act.
Police say that the cost of removing offending vehicles from the road will be the responsibility of the registered owner. Anyone with questions is asked to call Red Deer RCMP at 403-406-2200.
