The Weyburn Police Service laid five charges under the Traffic Safety Act last week.  

Of the charges, two involved drivers who were driving without a valid license, two involved the operation of an unregistered vehicle, and one involved a driver failing to stop for a traffic signal.  

“Generally, we will exercise discretion for something like an unregistered vehicle if it’s within just a few days, and it’s just absent mindedness we are usually pretty forgiving,” said Deputy Police Chief Brent VanDeSype. “But if it goes for a long time then it may be for the purpose of that individual trying to save money.” 

He added if they discover someone with their registration or license expired by a few days, they will ensure they go to SGI to renew it.
