Langley RCMP prepare for next weekend’s Cruise-In

Police will be on the lookout for drivers doing stunts, and for any problems during the Sept. 6 car show in Langley City.

The Langley Good Times Cruise-In is just around the corner, on Saturday, Sept. 6. Langley RCMP want to remind everyone they are stepping up their presence at the large event.

Langley Mounties have collaborated with its community partners to provide policing at all aspects of this event that draws more than 100,000 people to the downtown core. Consuming alcohol in public and intoxication will not be tolerated, warns police spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

Also, motorists are reminded of new legislation that allows for stiff penalties for unsafe driving.

“There is specific legislation pertaining to stunting (driving without reasonable consideration for others, drifting, burnouts, doughnuts, racing, etc.)” said Marks.

Drivers in violation of this offence not only will receive a violation ticket with an associated specified penalty, their vehicle will be impounded for seven full days. In order to reclaim their vehicle, the driver will be required to pay for any associated towing and storage charges, police said.

Officers will be vigilant in their pursuit of impaired drivers as well.

Individuals choosing to drive without a driver’s license could receive a seven-day vehicle impoundment.

Officers will be checking vehicles to ensure drivers and vehicles are properly licensed, all occupants are buckled up, and the vehicles themselves have no defects.

This is one of the largest events of this type in B.C. and provides a tremendous opportunity to showcase the City of Langley.

In years past, a Friday night gathering was drawing some drivers to do burn outs and doughnuts and some racing. Police quickly put an end to that.

Most years, the Cruise-In goes off without any police issues.
