In their continued effort to address road safety issues and educate citizens on the rules of the road, the HRP/RCMP Integrated Traffic Unit will focus on daytime running lights and cell phones during the month of March.
On April 1, 2008 hand-held cell phone use and text messaging while driving became prohibited, and on April 13, 2009 it became mandatory for all vehicles in Nova Scotia to use daytime running lights.
Both of these changes are aimed at helping to keep our roadways safe.
In February, the Unit’s focus was tinted windows and suspended drivers. They wrote 1,198 tickets during the month, including 32 for tinted windows and nine for driving while suspended.
