A motorist caught running a stop sign in Oak Bay allegedly asked the responding officer if they wanted to be on a popular social media app.
Oak Bay Police say one of their officers pulled over a motorist for failure to stop a stop sign near King George Terrace and Beach Drive at around 10 p.m. on Feb. 20.

The officer then investigated the driver, a 20-year-old man, for impaired driving, which resulted in the man’s vehicle being towed and his licence suspended for 24 hours.
He was also given a $167 ticket for failing to stop at a stop sign and a $230 ticket for operating a motor vehicle with cannabis in it.
