Drivers charged for unsafe driving on Dartmouth Road

Drivers charged for unsafe driving on Dartmouth Road

The Halifax Regional Police Traffic Unit has charged 37 drivers with motor vehicle violations after citizens came forward with concerns regarding unsafe driving on Dartmouth Road in Bedford.

During proactive patrols of the area over the last nine days, the Traffic Unit has issued 37 summary offence tickets for a variety of Motor Vehicle Act violations including charging a 17-year-old male driver with stunting. His vehicle was travelling 110 km/h in a 50 km/h zone near Eaglewood Drive Elementary close to lunch hour on Monday. A stunting charge is automatically laid when a vehicle is travelling more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. The ticket carries a $2,422.50 fine for a first offence and six points are assigned to the driver’s record. In addition, he was suspended from driving for one week and his vehicle was seized and towed.

HRP thanks these citizens for playing a role in enhancing public safety in our community and encourages the public to reach out to us if they are experiencing a safety concern in their neighborhood.

In their continued effort to address traffic safety issues and educate citizens on the rules of the road, the Traffic Unit focuses on speed enforcement throughout the year. They urge citizens to watch their speed and remember that the faster you drive, the less time you have to react.
