Lunenburg District, Nova Scotia – RCMP South Shore Traffic Services had a busy Tuesday morning in LaHave.
Earlier in the week, Lunenburg District RCMP had information to suggest that drivers were speeding along Highway 331 in LaHave, where the posted speed limit is 50km/h. As a result, the RCMP South Shore Traffic Services Unit conducted targeted patrols of the area yesterday morning.
Within four hours, officers handed out 30 Summary Offence Tickets for speeding and three Summary Offence Tickets for not wearing seatbelts.
“Speeding and aggressive driving, not wearing seatbelts, impaired driving and distracted driving are the four main causal factors of fatal and serious injuries on our roads,” says Sgt. Mark MacPherson, Lunenburg District RCMP. “We spend a lot of time gathering intelligence, working within our communities and conducting enforcement to identify and resolve public safety issues. These targeted patrols are a great example of that.”
Sgt. MacPherson adds, “We want to remind motorists that we will continue to closely monitor the area so please so down. Your safety and the safety of others on the road depend on it.”
Road Safety is a priority for the RCMP in Nova Scotia. If you have a concern about someone’s driving, report it by calling the RCMP at 1-800-803-RCMP (7267) for routine inquiries. In an emergency, please call 911.
