The New Brunswick RCMP conducted recent traffic enforcement in Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview, resulting in 232 traffic violations being issued and nine vehicles being towed.

On July 14 and 15, 2022, police conducted an enforcement operation targeting proper use of seatbelts, speeding, and distracted driving. The operation was led by the New Brunswick RCMP’s Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU), with assistance from the Codiac Regional RCMP.

In total, nine vehicles were towed and 232 charges were issued under the New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Act. These included 73 tickets for speeding, 71 tickets for not wearing a seatbelt, and 15 tickets for using a hand-held electronic device while driving. Additionally, 73 tickets for various infractions were issued, including 16 for driving without a valid inspection and five for driving without a valid driver’s license. Police also charged 15 people for driving while suspended. A number of warnings were also issued.

“Don’t put your safety and those around you at risk,” says Sgt. Mario Maillet with the TTEU. “Always keep your eyes on the road, follow the speed limit, buckle up, and drive sober.”

The RCMP’s TTEU conducts regular, targeted traffic enforcement on roadways throughout the province with the goals of improving road safety, educating motorists about the rules, and to reduce serious injury and fatal collisions.
