A joint multi-force operation conducted in Cathedral Grove on Feb. 25 produced 47 violation tickets, says RCMP Cpl. Mike Elston.

The operation was carried out by RCMP traffic services departments, Ministry of Forests officers, a provincial commercial vehicle inspector and Industry Canada inspectors, Elston said.

More than 2,000 vehicles were checked over six hours, he said.

The 47 tickets included violations for speeding, drivers licences, seatbelts, vehicle defects and one prohibited driver was taken off the road and the car impounded.

Industry Canada officers did radio checks on 10 vehicles and found all of them to be non-compliant with federal radio regulations.

Forestry officers checked 14 logging trucks and found three non-compliant with regulations.

Commercial vehicle officials issued two ticket violations and removed one trailer from the road.

Vehicles were stopped in both directions but Elston could not say how may violations came out of Port Alberni.
