Police issue 66 tickets in a single day during patrols

RCMP Northwest Traffic Services issued 66 Provincial Summary Offence Tickets to drivers in one day during enforcement patrols in East Hants.

On February 22, RCMP Northwest Traffic Services conducted enforcement patrols in the communities of Enfield, Elmsdale, Milford and Shubenacadie. As a result, officers issued 66 Provincial Summary Offence Tickets under the Motor Vehicle Act, including:

  • 10 for driving without valid inspection sticker or certificate
  • 9 for driving without insurance
  • 9 for driving an unregistered vehicle
  • 8 for driving with a suspended licence
  • 6 for using a hand-held cellular device while driving
  • 5 for driving above the posted speed limit
  • 5 for not wearing a seat belt

In addition, officers also issued three Criminal Code charges: Driving While Prohibited x2 and Refusal or Failure to Provide Breath Sample. 

Every motorist has a responsibility to protect themselves and other road users. When you wear your seatbelt, drive sober, stay focused and travel at safe speeds, you increase the odds that you and everyone around you will arrive home safely.
