Motorists reminded to slow down in construction zones
Road construction is in full swing, and Halifax Regional Police encourage citizens to watch their speed and be aware of multiple road construction zones throughout our community and on our highways. Motorists are reminded that the faster you drive, the less time you have to react.
Police will be monitoring construction zones to protect road crews, motorists and pedestrians. Remember to slow down and obey construction zone signs and traffic-control people and respect their work areas. Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled in construction zones and initial fines can go up to $697.50.
Police ask citizens to help play a role in community safety for everyone and anyone who observes unsafe driving in construction zones is asked to call police at 902-490-5020.
Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
