ATV User Avoids Fine Following Ride Near Scotch Creek

RCMP in Chase say that last week brought about a warning for a man busted riding an ATV in the back country.

Police say that they were called last Thursday about someone using their ATV in the back country near Scotch Creek.

RCMP found the operator, who was unaware of current restrictions prohibiting the use of such machines in the bush.

Chase RCMP say that the male was handed merely a warning, instead of a $767 fine.

Off-road vehicles have been prohibited in the back country since early this month.
