News release


On February 15, 16 and 17, 2024, the New Brunswick RCMP's Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU), members of the RCMP and the Highway Safety Enforcement – Branch of the Department of Justice and Public Safety, conducted a traffic enforcement operation on the Trans-Canada Highway 2 from Saint-Jacques to Aulac as well as in the Western Valley communities.

In total, eight vehicles were towed and 370 tickets were issued under the New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Act, including 258 tickets for speeding, 20 tickets for expired registration and five tickets for vehicle not being insured.

"This is our second operation this month and we want to remind people to check the expiry date of their vehicle registration", said Sgt. Ghislain David with the Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit. "During this operation, four vehicles were towed and impounded for seven days for speeding in excess of 50 km/hr but less than 80 km/hr over the speed limit. In addition, one person was charged with driving with a suspended license, and another for having a short-term licence suspension in relation to alcohol."

The New Brunswick RCMP's TTEU conducts regular, targeted traffic enforcement on roadways throughout the province with the goals of improving road safety, educating motorists about traffic laws, and to reduce serious injury and fatal collisions. Their top priority remains to ensure public safety by limiting the number of dangerous drivers on the roads.

The public can assist in keeping dangerous drivers off the road by reporting them to police. If you see a dangerous or a suspected impaired driver, call 911. Your description of the driver, vehicle, licence plate number and direction of travel can assist police in making New Brunswick roads safer.
