Mission RCMP launch new customized Police Harley Davidson motorcycle

Will target traffic violations with the purpose of reducing injuries, deaths and vehicle damage

The Mission RCMP has launched it’s customized Police Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The addition of the bike to the Mission Traffic Services will target traffic violations including distracted driving, with the express purpose of reducing injuries, deaths and vehicle damage attributed to these driving habits.

Over the next few months, Const. Rob Scott will be a visible presence in the City of Mission conducting patrols on the Harley.

The motorcycle itself allows for a tactical response during times of heavy traffic congestion and a more unobstructed view of surrounding motorists.

“The implementation of the motorbike can contribute significantly to the safety of motorists,” said Cpl. Jason Raaflaub, media relations officer.

For the month of May, the Mission Traffic Section alone, issued 79 violation tickets under the Motor Vehicle Act.

“Drive safe this summer and watch for Const. Scott!”
