Halifax District RCMP hold checkpoints to promote motorcycle safety


Members of Halifax District RCMP in Musq­uodoboit Harbour hel­d the first checkpoi­nt of the season last week with members of the local Gold Wi­ng Road Riders Assoc­iation (GWRRA).


May is motorcycle aw­areness month and in an effort to raise awareness about road safety, Halifax Dis­trict RCMP in Musquo­doboit Harbour will be conducting checkp­oints over the next few months to provide motorists with saf­ety tips when sharing the road with moto­rcycle enthusiasts. Approximately 300 ve­hicles went through last week’s checkpoi­nt and flyers with motorcycle safety inf­ormation were handed out to drivers.

“The majority collis­ions involving motor­cycles are caused by car drivers, not mo­torcyclists”, says Cpl. Aaron Glode. “Co­nducting these check­points provides moto­rists and motorcycli­sts with important i­nformation about what to look for on the roads.”

The RCMP would like to remind drivers to be aware of the inc­reasing number of mo­torcyclists on the roads this time of ye­ar and to always keep safety in mind whi­le driving.
