Members arrested one man for impaired driving under the Criminal Code after determining he was over two times the legal limit to drive. Members also issued four immediate roadside prohibitions under the Motor Vehicle Act. Four of the five drivers are local to the Whistler area.

The truck owner saw an Asian male and Caucasian female driving the car southbound on Highway 99 and then they got into a grey Toyota Camry and continued south.
