Man charged for speeding through construction zone, COVID-19 infraction

New Glasgow Regional Police have charged a 32-year-old male driver for violating the Emergency Management Act.

On Wednesday May 5, 2021 at 9:30 a.m., New Glasgow Regional Police conducted a vehicle stop and charged the male driver for speeding through a Construction Zone under the Motor Vehicle Act Section 106B(1)(b) on the Trenton Connector Road in Trenton, NS. Upon investigation, the driver was travelling from Halifax to New Brunswick and travelled to Trenton, Nova Scotia for non-essential business.

The driver was also charged under the Emergency Management Act Section 23(b) for failing to comply with direction, order or requirement made under the act that all persons are restricted travel within their own municipality.

The New Glasgow Regional Police would like to thank the vast majority of Nova Scotians who are following the directives under both the Nova Scotia Health Protection and Emergency Management Acts.

“Persons who do not follow these directives can face fines and are putting other Nova Scotians at health at risk,” said Constable Ken Macdonald of the New Glasgow Regional Police.

The public can report violations under the Nova Scotia Health Protection and Emergency Management Acts by calling New Glasgow Regional Police at 902 752-1941 or in the event of an emergency call 911.

Following these directives and reporting violations can help reduce the spread of Covid-19.
