BCHP’s mandate is to conduct enforcement targeting those offences which contribute to the cause of serious injury and fatal collisions: Aggressive Driving/Speeding, Distracted Driving, Impaired Driving, Unrestrained Occupants and Intersection infractions.

Enforcement operations such as this demonstrates our commitment to road safety, says Sergeant Bryce Petersen of BCHP Kelowna. By working together with our Detachment partners we prevent crime and make our highways safer together.

BC Highway Patrol urges motorists to always wear seatbelts, follow speed limits, drive sober and distraction-free every time you get behind the wheel.
