RCMP issue 112 tickets during traffic enforcement operation during long weekend
A recent RCMP traffic enforcement operation during the long weekend in the Western Valley Region has resulted in 112 traffic violations being issued.
On September 1 and September 2, 2023, members of the New Brunswick RCMP’s Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU) and Highway Safety Enforcement Branch of the Department of Justice and Public Safety, worked together to conduct multiple traffic enforcement operations in the Western Valley Region which included the Trans-Canada Highway 2. In total, six vehicles were towed, several of which had no insurance coverage on the vehicle, and 112 tickets were issued under the New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Act.
One vehicle was towed and impounded for seven-days for speeding more than 50km/h over the posted speed limit, but less than 80km/h over. Additionally, two people were issued a court date for driving while suspended. Several breath demands were given throughout the day, resulting in one person being arrested for driving while impaired, and another person receiving a seven-day roadside licence suspension.
“The focus of the RCMP’s Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit is on behaviours that are the greatest risk to the public, whether it be driving behaviours or criminal activity” says Sgt. Ghislain David with the TTEU. “We all have a role to play when it comes to making our roads and communities safer, and our top priority continues to be keeping the public safe by limiting the number of dangerous drivers on our roadways.”
The public can assist in keeping dangerous drivers off the road by reporting them to police. If you see a dangerous or a suspected impaired driver, call 911. Your description of the driver, vehicle, licence plate number and direction of travel can assist police in making New Brunswick roads safer.
