On Monday, November 26th, 2012, the Antigonish Detachment of the RCMP along with the RCMP’s Eastern Traffic Services conducted traffic enforcement around various crosswalks throughout the town of Antigonish.

As a result of the increased patrols police issued seven summary offence tickets for motorists failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk and two charges of talking on a cell phone while driving. Police issued a number of written and verbal warnings as well.

The RCMP continues to remind the public that it takes crosswalk safety very seriously and will be conducting similar operations throughout the coming weeks.
