Speed­ing crack­down

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

The RCMP is­sued 30 tick­ets in a crack­down on speed­ing and ag­gres­sive driv­ing Wed­nes­day morn­ing in parts of P.E.I.

En­force­ment ef­forts tar­geted routes lead­ing into Char­lot­te­town be­tween 5:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. and led to seven writ­ten warn­ings.

RCMP Cpl. Chris Gunn said the force has been hear­ing from the pub­lic about prob­lems dur­ing morn­ing and af­ter­noon com­mutes, in­clud­ing tail­gat­ing, pass­ing while un­safe and speed­ing. RCMP and pro­vin­cial high­way en­force­ment of­fi­cers set up sev­eral check­points to catch peo­ple driv­ing with­out wear­ing seat­belts and us­ing their cell­phone while driv­ing.

There were nine tick­ets for not wear­ing seat­belts and two for driv­ing while us­ing a cell­phone.

Two years ago com­mu­nity lead­ers from across At­lantic Canada gath­ered in Ge­orge­town, PEI with the goal of re­defin­ing ru­ral At­lantic Canada.The con­fer­ence spurred a move­ment of ac­tion

that res­onates still in all four At­lantic Provinces.
