Posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017 07:20 AM

If you think there are more RCMP on the roads this week than normal, you're not imagining it.

May 16-22 is National Road Safety Week and Corporal Jennifer Clarke says they will be out in force.

"You're going to see a lot of us out in the public trying to enforce anything to do with safety on our roads in Nova Scotia. Particularly impaired driving, distracted driving, aggressive driving and also improper use of seatbelts. We'll be setting up checkpoints, making sure that all of those things are being covered off. And we certainly hope to see that everyone is complying."

Clarke says they'll also be looking at inspection stickers and registrations.

She says the public wants to know police are on the lookout for dangerous drivers and these are the steps they need to take to ensure the roads are safe for all Nova Scotians.
