RCMP want to make sure you know the importance of clicking your seat belt in – it was an objective for the month of March.
It’s getting creative doing it too! Last month, members of Northwest Traffic Services in Amherst wanted people to be vigilant, not just when police is present.
Officers rented a pick-up truck and dressed as surveyors with uniformed officers nearby in police vehicles.
The disguised offivers would spot offences and radio to the uniformed officers down the street.
For the month if issued the following tickets:
· 83 seatbelt tickets
· 6 cell phone tickets
· 17 warnings
· 3 unregistered vehicle tickets
· 3 expired safety inspection tickets
· 1 man with an outstanding warrant
