VPD Const. Tania Visintin told Daily Hive that the limo was stopped over the weekend and confirmed that it was found to be carrying 10 passengers.
“The driver had a class 1 [licence], which requires a supervisor to be a passenger,” she added. “There was no supervisor for the driver in this case.”
Visintin said police have notified the Passenger Transportation Board about the incident and that they will follow up with the company.
The driver was issued a ticket for disobeying DL restrictions.
