An interior B.C. man discovered that driving a lawn tractor on public streets was not the road to greener pastures.

RCMP responded to a complaint about the dubious driving on Monday, at 11 a.m. in Lake Country.

Police located the man, who was driving home on the lawn tractor, having just come from a nearby liquor store, says Cpl. Mike Halskov with B.C. RCMP Traffic Services.

The man showed signs of impairment and refused to provide a breath sample. He was served with a 90-day driving prohibition, and the lawn tractor was impounded.

Police also served the man with tickets for no insurance and no driver's licence.

Halskov reminds that impaired driving is illegal, no matter what type of motorized conveyance is being driven, and that COVID-19 is not an excuse to disregard the law.
