Neighbourhood Street Safety
With the current public health directives, our neighbourhood streets and sidewalks are busy with people staying active while doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Halifax Regional Police is reminding everyone to work together to keep our streets and communities safe.
- Motorists and cyclists should slow their speed on busy residential streets and keep a watchful eye out for pedestrians, children and pets.
- Pedestrians should stay alert for vehicles and cyclists, particularly when no sidewalk is available.
- When out and about outdoors, remember to keep appropriate physical distance from others who are not in your household bubble. Carry a mask with you in the event you are not able to maintain a physical distance of 2 metres (6 feet) from others.
- While walking, if you’re able to do so safely, yield the sidewalk to others and smile and wave as you pass them by – it’s the Nova Scotian thing to do.
