The RCMP in western Newfoundland are putting a big focus on cracking down on drivers not obeying traffic laws in construction zones,CBC News reports.
Const. Matthew Christie said police are hoping to curb reckless speeding in the construction zones along the Trans-Canada Highway before someone gets hurt.
“We did have a fatality last year in a construction zone, and my main goal here is to get that message out: to slow down. It’s not just the fact that you may get a ticket or lose points on your drivers license — that’s the best case scenario — you could take somebody’s life, somebody who has a family,” said Christie.
