Police urge motorists to drive with extra caution

With students returning to school next week, HRM Partners in Policing are asking motorists to drive with added caution.

Thousands of students will be returning to school next week which will mean extra pedestrian and vehicular traffic on the streets in HRM. Motorists are asked to drive with caution and allow for extra time when travelling before, during and after school.

Passing school buses in either direction when the red lights are flashing, regardless of the number of traffic lanes, not only puts people in danger, but is illegal and carries substantial fines. Please avoid shortcutting in and around school areas if possible. Obey posted signs as well as crossing guards= directions, watch out for children crossing the street and remember that crosswalks are not always marked.

Halifax District RCMP and Halifax Regional Police ask that you do your part to make the streets safe for students as they head back to school.
