  • Delta bus driver carrying 35 passengers charged with impaired driving

West Vancouver Police have laid impaired charges on a bus driver carrying 35 passengers on a commercial bus from Whistler to Vancouver.

Via statement, the police say just before 9:30PM on August 5, 2022, they were contacted by 1 of the 35 passengers on a Vancouver bound bus from Whistler. The passenger reported the driver appeared intoxicated and was driving erratically. 

Patrol members stopped the bus in the 1300 block of the Trans Canada Highway and detained the driver for impaired driving. Police took the male back to the department to provide breath samples. 

On October 25, 2022, 65 year old Craig Randle of Delta was charged with operation of a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or a drug along with operation of a vehicle while blood alcohol concentration is equal to or over the legal limit. 

“The West Vancouver Police continue targeted enforcement against impaired drivers” said Cst. Nicole Braithwaite “In this case, we are fortunate that an alert citizen notified us to this serious public safety risk. That, combined with the quick action of our officers, resulted in the bus being stopped before a serious incident could occur”.

If anyone has any more information they are asked to call West Vancouver Police.
