B.C. police nab impaired driver in golf cart

Police found the man driving in Delta early Tuesday morning wearing a bathrobe and slippers

There may be fewer cars on city streets these days, but that doesn’t mean the rules of the road don’t apply.

That was the message put out by police in Delta after stopping a man driving a golf cart down the street in Tsawwassen early Tuesday morning.

According to a post to the department’s Facebook page, an officer was driving southbound on 52nd Street near 12th Avenue at 2:51 a.m. on April 14 when he observed a golf cart driving northbound up 52nd. Wondering why a golf cart was being driven on the roadway, the officer activated his lights and siren and pulled the cart over to check the driver’s insurance, licence and sobriety.

“Upon approaching the golf cart, the officer detected a distinct odour of liquor and noted the driver was wearing a bathrobe and slippers,” the post reads.

After failing a breathalyser test, the driver was banned from driving for 90 days, and his golf cart was towed.

“While our roads may be quieter than normal, please remember all the normal rules of the road apply — and are being enforced,” police said on Twitter.
