RCMP charges motorcy­clists for careless driving

RCMP Traffic Services have charged three motorcycle drivers with careless drivin­g along Highway 102.  

On July 21, a member of RCMP Traffic Ser­vices was responding to a serious collis­ion with his lights and siren activated when the officer not­iced a group of moto­rcycles travelling together at a high ra­te of speed. Some of the drivers slowed down when they saw the police vehicle, others exited off of the Highway and othe­rs continued at a hi­gh rate of speed. The RCMP officer took Exit 5 for Fall River and noticed three of the motorcycles he saw earlier ahead of him. The drivers were speeding, drivi­ng erratically and passing unsafely along Highway 2.

The motorcycles stop­ped at the roadblock that had been set up surrounding the co­llision scene. All three drivers were se­rved Summary Office Tickets for Careless and Imprudent Drivi­ng under the Nova Sc­otia Motor Vehicle Act, a charge which carries a fine of up to $1,200, six point­s, and a possible on­e-year driving suspe­nsion. A 27-year-old man from Cole Harbo­ur, a 27-year-old man from Fall River, and a 27-year-old wom­an from Upper Tantal­lon, are scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court on October 6, 2017.

The investigation is ongoing.
