The driver of a jeep that was stuck in the alpine area of Hudson Bay Mountain has been charged 575 dollars, plus a large tow bill to get the vehicle out.
Deputy Chief Chris Doyle with the BC Conservation Office says driving in the alpine area can cause severe damage to the environment.
“It’s a reminder for off-road vehicle users that mud bogging activities are for designated areas. And alpine areas are particularity sensitive and susceptible to damage.”
He says the sensitive land there will take a long time to repair itself from the damage.
The jeep was discovered last Wednesday and was removed Sunday.
