Force’s Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit issues 93 tickets over two days

The RCMP issued 93 tickets and towed two cars on Feb. 8 and 9 during a Western Valley Region enforcement operation by the New Brunswick RCMP’s Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU). 

In a press release, TTEU said it issued the tickets under the New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Act, including 50 tickets for speeding and seven for using a hand-held electronic device while driving. 

Additionally, officers arrested one person for driving while impaired and another for driving while suspended.

“The RCMP Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit focuses on behaviours that pose the greatest risk to the public, whether it’s driving behaviours or criminal activity,” said Sgt. Ghislain David with the Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit. “We all have a role to play when it comes to making our roads and communities safer, and our top priority remains ensuring public safety by limiting the number of dangerous drivers on our roadways.”

The release reminded the public that it can assist in keeping dangerous drivers off the road by reporting them to the police. 

Anyone who sees a dangerous or suspected impaired driver should call 911. Their description of the driver, vehicle, licence plate number and direction of travel can assist police in making New Brunswick roads safer.
