Use of fake international licence results in arrest for driver in Liverpool



Liverpool RCMP arrested a driver using a fake international licence, January 10.

Members of Liverpool RCMP were conducting routine patrols in Liverpool when they stopped a vehicle for erratic driving. The driver gave police a suspicious looking international drivers licence.

The police officer checked into it further and determined the licence was fake, and also found the driver was prohibited from driving. He was arrested, and was given the Roadside Screening Device, resulting in a "warn."

The driver is facing a charge of driving while prohibited under the criminal code, and, in addition, was served three tickets for the following offences under the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act: displaying a fictitious licence; operating a motor vehicle without a motor vehicle liability policy; and operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver's licence.

The driver is scheduled to appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court on the prohibited driving charge on March 3, and for the Motor Vehicle Act offences, he is scheduled to appear on March 13.
