Yesterday at 12:30 p.m., members of the Yarmouth Rural RCMP were conducting focussed patrols in the Hebron area. The patrols were in relation to concerns raised in the community of speeding drivers on Hwy. 1.
A vehicle was stopped for travelling just over 100 km/h in a 50 km/h zone near the intersection of Hwy. 1 and Hwy. 340. The driver, a 17-year-old female youth from Clare, was charged for Stunting. The vehicle she was driving was impounded, her licence was suspended for seven days, and she received a fine of $2422.50.
“The safety of Nova Scotians on our roadways is a priority for the RCMP” said Staff Sergeant Ben Parry of the Yarmouth Rural Detachment. “Aggressive driving places the public at an unacceptable risk and our members will continue to pro-actively enforce the Motor Vehicle Act in order to improve road safety.”
