With more impaired drivers than officers can handle, Victoria police shut roadblock down early

Victoria police were overwhelmed by impaired drivers Saturday night at a roadblock near Yates and Wharf streets. 

Victoria police shut down an impaired driving roadblock earlier than they wanted Sunday morning — they simply did not have enough personnel to handle the number of impaired drivers.

The roadblock near the corner of Yates and Wharf streets was shut down around 2 a.m. Sunday, about two hours after it was set up, because officers on scene were too busy to handle any more traffic..

“We got so bogged down in paperwork,” said Const. Stephen Pannekoek, who has been on the traffic detail for six years. “If we’d had a couple of more bodies, we could have kept going because it was hopping.”

Drivers tried to butter him up but got themselves in a sticky situation. Be decisive, never waffle.

It just goes to show you: cheaper and way less hassle to leave the car at home and go Dutch on a cab.

Be careful rushin' to make pancake jokes - they might fall flatke!


Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?
