Dump trucks continue to cause headaches on Munns Road

RCMP receive complaints, photos regarding speeding, reckless commercial vehicles in Langford

RCMP have been receiving complaints from residents around Munns Road in Langford over speeding dump trucks.

The road is a common route for commercial vehicles and there have been problems in the past with dump trucks speeding and crossing the centre line while turning corners. Last year RCMP went around to local businesses to discuss the issues, which then subsided.

Lately, however, the problem has returned.

RCMP received photographs taken by a resident of trucks crossing over the solid yellow centre line. Police are now investigating two specific incidents in the photos and say they will be issuing tickets, and talking to the drivers and owners of the trucks.

The public is asked to come to RCMP with licence plate numbers and any other evidence of speeding commercial vehicles.

“It’s obvious that it won’t take much for something to happen,” said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Max Fossum. “That road’s being shared by horses, at times there are hikers, cyclists and other vehicles. I would hate to see my kid going around the corner facing that dump truck.”
