Drivers charged after distracted driving past crash scene, Halifax Regional Municipality, N.S.

The desire to snap pictures at a crash scene has resulted in distracted driving fines for some motorists.

While investigating a collision on Highway 102 in Lower Sackville, RCMP officers observed drivers whipping out their cell phones to take video or pictures of the collision scene.

Officers issued four tickets to offenders.

‘It is certainly concerning to us,’ says Sgt Andy Kerr, Halifax District RCMP. ‘Another crash could have occurred easily as these people were on their phones and not paying attention to what was occurring around them. This behaviour also puts the safety of first responders at the crash scene and others on the road at risk.’

Distracted driving is the leading cause of serious injury and fatal collisions on Nova Scotia roadways.
