Charlottetown police handed out 24 tickets Thursday afternoon after the latest in a planned series of roadside check stops.

The tickets were issued for violations of the Highway Traffic Act and one vehicle had to be towed because the driver didn’t have insurance.

It was the third roadside check stop Charlottetown police have set up this week.

Charlottetown police have issued a total of 64 tickets under the Highway Traffic Act and charged one man for impaired driving as part of this week’s check stops.

    Headscratcher, if you cannot afford to pay for the registration and inspection sticker for a car then there is always public transportation to get you out for a double double and a smoke. As for staying home and collecting welfare instead of paying for a car, I suggest you are probably already doing that. By the way, owing a car is not a right and if you don't have the money to keep a car that is not government or society's problem.

      Bill, you sound like an over paid government worker to me! You suggest I'm already doing that eh??? I am a successful business owner if you must know. As for a vehicle I actually own 2 trucks, a jeep, 2 cars and a minivan. Not to mention my Atv's, snowmobile and boat. I also own my new house and buildings, all paid for in full so watch who you shoot your mouth off to. God forbid someone stick up for the less fortunate! That being said I stick to my original comment. .

    Fill those purses up coppers, got to justify your high paid salary jobs off the backs of the over taxed Islander. Here's an idea, try dropping the damn registration and inspection fees and just maybe people will actually be able to afford them. $135 is a complete rip off for 2 measly stickers especially when you have to drive the cow paths we call roads. With the cost of Insurance, GAS, registration, inspection and maintenance a person is almost better off staying home on welfare. As for the police, If all you have to do is drive around and issue traffic violations then I think it's time to get rid of a few bodies from the force. Seems to me it is almost always the public rats who are doing your job for you anyway. You should be in the same boat as Canada post employees... LAY OFFS!
