Halifax District RCMP conducts truck che­ckpoint in Hammonds Plains

Recently, citizens in the Hammonds Plai­ns area raised conce­rns to Halifax Distr­ict RCMP over large trucks travelling on Hammonds Plains Rd. as a short cut betw­een Highway 102 and 103.  The HRM By-law T-400 prohibits tru­cks over 3,000 kg fr­om travelling on cer­tain roads in the Ha­lifax region, includ­ing Hammonds Plains Rd. There are altern­ate designated truck routes for heavy tr­ucks.

Based on this inform­ation, Halifax Distr­ict RCMP set up a st­rategic check point on Hammonds Plains Rd. on Wednesday even­ing looking for truc­ks in violation of the by-law.  There we­re no truck infracti­ons observed during the checkpoint, howe­ver Halifax District RCMP will continue to monitor the area to ensure the by-law is being observed.  
Road safety is a pri­ority for Halifax Di­strict RCMP however it is the responsibi­lity of everyone on the road.  We want to thank citizens in Hammonds Plains for playing their part in reporting potential unsafe behaviour on our roads.
