Surrey Police Write 900 Tickets In May Along King George

Surrey RCMP wrote almost 900 traffic fine tickets during May’s crackdown on bad drivers along King George Boulevard.

Among them, 327 were for speeding, 199 were for intersection-related charges like running red lights, 191 were for high-risk driving like making unsafe lane changes and tailgating, 169 were for distracted driving including texting and yakking on cellphones, and five charges were laid for impaired driving.

There have been five traffic deaths along the northern part of the George over the past three years.

Almost half – 44 per cent – of all traffic crashes in B.C. resulting in injury or death involve high-risk driving, police say.
