One day after Burnaby RCMP caught and fined a commercial truck driver who was using a piece of wood in place of a passenger seat, police said on Friday they caught another commercial truck driver apparently trying to get creative when it came to adding seats to their vehicle.
And while the truck this time did in fact have a proper passenger seat, police discovered a third person in the two-seat vehicle – using a child’s car seat as their own.
“Instead of a woodblock this time the extra adult passenger utilized a child booster seat,” police tweeted.
The driver received a $598 ticket as a result.
The third passenger, police said, “left the scene on the SkyTrain.”

Police said the two incidents took place during targeted enforcement specifically dealing with commercial vehicles this week.
