BC RCMP Are Getting Roasted For Warning People To Stop Going 'Zoomy Zoom On The Slicky Slick'

The B.C. RCMP's Twitter page is attracting lots of comments after a post appears to send a light-hearted warning message following a collision.

A press release linked in the tweet, titled "No zoomy zoom on the slicky slick or you'll go boom boom," refers to a collision in Merritt, B.C., and tells people to drive extra carefully on the Coquihalla Highway and Highway 97C now that winter weather is here.

But not everyone appreciated the attempted humour of the post.

Some users described the post as "savage," and one replied saying, "You still have time to delete this."

Another Twitter user was disappointed with the light-hearted tone of the post.

In a more serious element to the press release, Sgt. Josh Roda of Merritt RCMP said, "We are pleading with the public to please slow down when driving this winter season.

"It's only the end of October and we've already been to numerous crashes on our Highways and one where an officer and a partner agency were almost struck by a passing vehicle."

More speed radars are coming to parts of B.C. as part of the Kamloops Crime Prevention Speed Watch Program, and over 85,000 vehicles were already checked last year.

If you tend to go a little too fast while driving, it's time to hit the brake pedal — especially if you live in Kamloops, B.C.

This dog in B.C. busted $2 million worth of drugs that were being smuggled across the Canadian border, and he looks so proud of himself in the photo.

The dog, named Garner, is a police dog who is now retiring, but he'll definitely be missed. The RCMP released a statement about the beloved pup, who is saying goodbye after almost six years of work.

There were some pretty unbelievable 911 calls made in B.C. last year, and a lot of them were definitely not emergencies.

In a year that was filled with many actual emergency situations, including wildfires and flooding, these seven calls seem that much more ridiculous to hear about.

Three underaged teenagers were arrested for trying to go and buy alcohol at a liquor store in B.C. and then assaulting the staff members with bear spray when they were refused service.

The police were called to the liquor store in Port Moody, B.C. around 5:15 p.m. on January 5. The police report said that the teens were all "clearly" underaged, but they were trying to buy liquor anyway.
