RCMP laid more than 250 charges in Dauphin from June 25 to 29, the days of Countryfest, but only four of those charges were under the Liquor and Gaming Control Act.
RCMP stepped up traffic enforcement while the fest was on, checking vehicles in and around Dauphin, according to a press release. During the five days, they stopped around 2,700 vehicles.
Most of the charges, 201 of them, were related to speeding. Another 13 were for failing to wear a seatbelt, and two were for handling a hand held device. Other charges included driving while suspended, careless driving, and driving while disqualified.
