Comox Valley RCMP kicked off the long weekend in a very big way, targeting high risk drivers on the Inland Island Highway at Cook Creek Road.

Well the tickets have all been tallied up, and it looks like some drivers are simply not getting the message on the need to slow down.

Goat News spoke with RCMP Constable Don Sinclair, who says police were kept busy doling out the tickets, some involving excessive speeds.

Constable Don Sinclair says more of these major police enforcement campaigns will be held throughout the summer months, including some with a focus on distracted driving.
