RCMP hand out tickets at Countryfest

Got your tickets for Countryfest? The RCMP do.

They said they handed out nearly four dozen traffic tickets in the leadup to the popular annual country music festival just south of Dauphin.

Vehicles were lined up for about two kilometres along Highway 10 on Wednesday afternoon, before the gates to the Countryfest site opened up to let people in. The festival itself actually got underway Thursday, and runs until Sunday night.

Mounties handed out 40 speeding tickets in the leadup to the festival, and also cited one person with not wearing a seatbelt and another person for using a hand-held device. Four other minor traffic violations were also handed out.

That’s down substantially from Day 1 of Countryfest last year, when police issued 90 speeding tickets and laid a dozen other charges.

This year, like last year, there was no need for police presence at the actual Countryfest site on Wednesday.

RCMP say they will be doing checkstops and roving patrols around the Dauphin area all weekend long.
