Police issue 29 tickets for speeding and other vehicle offences
Halifax Regional Police issued 29 tickets for speeding, stunting and other motor vehicle-related offences last Friday.
Members from the HRP Traffic Unit issued 29 summary offence tickets: 17 for speeding; 1 for stunting; and 11 for other offences including no insurance, expired plates, driving while suspended and improper passing.
At approximately 1:15 p.m. an officer observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed on Highway 102 near the Hammonds Plains Road in Bedford. The officer captured the vehicle’s speed at 155 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. A 35-year-old Bedford man was ticketed for stunting under the Motor Vehicle Act, a charge that is automatically laid when a vehicle is travelling more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. In addition, the man was suspended from driving for seven days and the vehicle he was driving was seized and impounded.
In a continued effort to address traffic safety issues and educate citizens on the rules of the road, our officers focus on speed enforcement. We all have a role to play in keeping our roads safe.
