Community police from throughout the central Okanagan teamed up with RCMP in Lake Country last Tuesday to carry out an intensive campaign to reduce speeding in th e community.

Slow down or get a ticket

The Lake Country Citizens Patrol hit the streets with its Speed Watch program last week.

The local crew was supported by community police volunteers from Kelowna, West Kelowna and Peachland as well as RCMP officers.

The volunteers set up five speed reader boards throughout the community. RCMP officers coordinated with the Citizens Patrol to set up a short distance away from the reader boards to ticket drivers who failed to slow down to the speed limit. In an hour and a half more than 1,500 vehicles were clocked and 36 high speed tickets were written.
