The RCMP is reminding motorists to slow down and buckle up following a weekend traffic blitz that resulted in more than 100 charges.
The RCMP Annapolis Valley Traffic Services Unit launched an enforcement campaign last weekend targeting distracted drivers, aggressive drivers, and people who don’t buckle up.
The weekend netted 138 charges between Hants and Kings counties.
Of those charges:
• 95 were for not buckling up,
• 33 were for speed-related offences
• seven were for using a cell phone while driving.
One motorist from Kings County was observed on radar traveling 153 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. The driver was charged with stunting, which includes a fine of more than $2,400.
Another Kings County motorist was charged with having no insurance, which resulted in his vehicle being towed.
