The Estevan Police Service has noted an surge in stunting tickets being issued to drivers in the Energy City.
"We have seen a bit of an increase in the amount of vehicles that are driving improperly, squealing tires, doing donuts in parking lots things like that," explained Police Chief, Paul Ladouceur. "It gets to the point where we have to start clamping down on that."
"It's not a toy when you're driving a car and some seem to think that it is and want to drive that way. We've seen numerous issues, we've had some issues at the arena at Affinity, in the parking lot there where people are leaving their garbage and they're squealing their tires and driving erratically."
He added that a stunting ticket can easily lead to serious criminal charges.
"It's important to note that we started out with stunting tickets and as we move forward, it's quite possible that where people are driving erratically in parking lots where people are likely to be, that could constitute dangerous driving under the Criminal Code and that could end up in criminal charges."
"You have to ask yourself, if it's worth it. But if you're prepared to sit there and drive erratically where people are, be prepared to face criminal charges and have the consequences."
He noted that a driver's licence is a privilege, not a right.
"With that license, comes the privilege of driving, not the right of driving and if you can't stay attuned to that privilege then you're going to lose that privilege and that's all there is to it."
