Police pulled over another man on Torbay Road, and arrested him for failure to appear in court on an impaired driving charge, using false stickers, a false insurance card and driving while suspended.
The driver, also 29, also had $1,200 in outstanding traffic fines.
In the Conception Bay South area, the Constabulary issued more tickets.
In Manuels, a 27-year-old man was given summary offence tickets for driving while suspended and for not having a valid driver's licence.
Police then arrested a 37-year-old man in Long Pond, for driving while suspended and operating a vehicle without insurance. He also had $6,300 in outstanding fines.
All four vehicles were impounded by the RNC.
