FREDERICTON, N.B. — Police in Fredericton are out in full force this week looking for speeders, traffic light runners, those who refuse to buckle their seatbelts and impaired drivers.
Sgt. Gary Arbour, of the community policing division, says the crackdown is part of activities associated with National Road Safety Week.
The checks, ongoing all week in various parts of the city, including trouble intersections, will continue up to and including the Victoria Day holiday.
“Our goal is make the streets safer,” Arbour says. “We’re getting the odd violator but the message is just to slow down.”
RCMP members around the province, including those at District 2 in Oromocto, are also participating in the week-long event.
