Six vehicles were towed and 104 tickets were issued during the latest RCMP traffic enforcement operation in the Greater Moncton area.

Vehicles were pulled over on Feb. 2┬áby members of the New Brunswick RCMP’s Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU), Codiac Regional RCMP, and the Highway Safety Enforcement Branch of the Department of Justice and Public Safety.

Seventeen tickets were issued for using a hand-held electronic device while driving, and 16 tickets for not wearing a seatbelt.

Twenty-eight tickets were also issued for having no current inspection certificate. One person was issued a court date for driving while suspended.

“We want to remind people to make sure to verify the expiration of your inspection sticker which is located on the bottom left-hand corner of your windshield,” said Sgt. Ghislain David with the Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit.

The 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 reducing serious injury and fatal collisions.
