HALIFAX, N.S. – Drivers who disobey traffic control in construction areas will have demerit points tacked onto their driver’s record under legislation that was proclaimed on Aug. 23.

Ron Russell, Minister of Transportation and Public Works, says he wants to protect his staff and contractors who are trying to guide motorists through highway construction zones. He says these people perform a valuable service and deserve to be protected.
