"This incident is a clear disregard for the safety of all road users, including himself," said Cpl. Craig Douglass of the Prince George RCMP.

"Any number of things could have easily caused a serious collision that almost certainly would have caused at least one death. There is no excuse for his actions."

The man's truck was impounded for just seven days.

Further penalties may be imposed by the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles and/or the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia.
