Uninsured unregistered vehicle on street costs owner big bucks

If you have a vehicle parked on a public street or roadway, make sure you’ve registered and insured it or face big fines, as one local man discovered in Stettler Provincial Court on Sept. 9.

Glenn Wesley Rowland of Stettler was fined $2,875 after pleading guilty to parking his vehicle on a street without automobile insurance and $340 for the same vehicle parked on the street without being registered.

Travis Willie Mueller, 23, of Halkirk, was fined $1,500 after pleading guilty to impaired care and control of a motor vehicle after he, having passed out in the driver’s seat, stopped his vehicle on a driving lane on a highway on Aug. 14, 2010 and was observed by a passing motorist.

“Traffic safety is a grave social issue,” said Judge B. D. Rosborough.

“You put yourself and others at risk in the situation.”

Aaron Bernard Boehme was issued a 12-month common-law peace bond for an incident in Stettler on May 6, 2010 with a charge of uttering a threat for bodily harm.
