Local facing driving charges after RCMP find "The Club" on steering wheel

A 27 year-old local is facing charges under the Traffic Safety Act after RCMP responded to calls of an erratic driver going southbound on 63 near Boyle.

Boyle RCMP say it happened late Wednesday, and according to witnesses he almost caused a head on collision.

When RCMP found and pulled him over, they say he was driving with “The Club” on his steering wheel which is an anti-theft device.

It’s used on parked vehicles; not while driving because it can hurt the ability to control the vehicle.

RCMP say the Fort McMurray man couldn’t explain why he was using it, and he took it off before carrying on his trip.
