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.
