Halifax Regional Police is once again urging motorists to slow down and pedestrians to pay extra attention to their surroundings following another car/pedestrian collision this morning in Dartmouth.
At 11:41 a.m., police responded to a collision at the intersection of Caledonia Road and Main Street. A 23-year-old female pedestrian crossing Main Street was hit in a marked crosswalk by a vehicle turning from Caledonia Road onto Main Street. She suffered minor injuries and was transported to hospital by EHS. A 76-year-old female driver was issued a summary offence ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
Police remind motorists and pedestrians that road safety is a shared responsibility. Motorists are reminded to adjust their driving habits and be mindful of possible changes in road conditions which could affect their ability to stop safely and limit visibility. Pedestrians are reminded to make eye contact with drivers and wait until vehicles come to a complete stop before attempting to cross the road at marked crosswalks.
