RCMP and Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal thank Nova Scotians, Halifax Regional Municipality, N.S.

The Nova Scotia RCMP and Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal would like to take this opportunity to thank Nova Scotians for using good judgement and staying off the roads during yesterday’s blizzard.

Although heavy snowfall and high winds created hazardous driving conditions, there were minimal collisions and few people were reported near beaches and the water’s edge.

‘With so few vehicles on our roads it was clear – people were listening to the watches and warnings,’says Supt. Darrell Beaton, acting officer-in-charge of criminal operations for the RCMP in Nova Scotia. ‘That kind of behavior makes the job of first responders and snow plow operators much easier during any winter storm.’

Geoff MacLellan, Minister, Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal added ‘We’re very grateful to everyone who heeded the warnings to stay off the roads. It was not only helpful for our clean-up work, but went a long way toward keeping everyone safe.’
