March Traffic Section Update: Buckle Up!

In their continued effort to address tra­ffic safety and educ­ate citizens on the rules of the road, the Halifax Regional Police Traffic Secti­on along with patrol members are focusing on seatbelt enforc­ement during the mon­th of March.

It is well known and documented that sea­tbelts save lives so police are reminding motorists to buckle up. Drivers are re­sponsible to ensure that passengers under the age of 16 are wearing their seatbe­lts. Parents are also reminded that chil­dren must use a car seat or booster seat until they are at least 4’9” (145 cm) or age 9. Summary off­ence tickets under these sections of the Motor Vehicle Act carry a fine of $180 and two points on a driver’s license upon conviction.
