At 2:30 pm yesterday (April 26), Charlottetown Police Services responded to a complaint of a tractor trailer driver not following public health guidelines during a delivery.
The driver had just arrived on PEI an hour before and was scheduled to drop off his load of merchandise at a City store. He proceeded to exit his truck and get into a vehicle and went for a drive with a friend whom is a PEI resident. He later returned to his truck and left the store prior to Police attending. With the assistance of the E-Watch cameras, Police were able to locate the direction of travel of the tractor trailer and located it on the arterial highway and pulled it over. A 26 year old Ontario male was issued a $1000 dollar ticket in violation of the Public Health Act. Off Island truck drivers making deliveries are required to remain in their trucks at all times.
The investigation in relation to the driver of the other vehicle that picked up the truck driver is ongoing.
