All over the country we see news and social media posts about protesting happening for all sorts of reasons such a fuel cost, transport costs and wanted increases on salaries ect.

Sometimes the extent of these protests get way out of control and land up being safety hazards and some end up being violent. Law enforcement officials that are placed on scene sometimes have to completely divert traffic and may end up having to resort to drastic measures such as tear gas and rubber bullets to try and deescalate the situation. Structures and the environment take a heavy toll during protests such as these.

I received a call from a member who wanted to report that he was stuck in the middle of a protest where the road had been blocked off by protesters that had started burning tires and tree stumps were used to  block the road. The reason for this process was unknown at the time. Traffic was severely affected as the road were closed and motorists had to try and find alternative routes to get out of the area. They were feeling threatened and were concerned for their safety as well as the safety of their vehicles.

We sent out an alert to our members to avoid the area and law enforcement was contacted to standby on scene to control the protest and help motorists find alternative safer routes.

We are happy to report that the protest did not escalate in to a situation where any one was hurt or vehicles were damaged. The protest was kept under control and all members of law enforcement and motorists driving through the area were unharmed.
