ENFIELD: Over the past week, officers with East Hants RCMP responded to 95 calls for service.

The following are a couple of the highlighted calls as provided by Community Policing Officer Const. Preston Burns.


On January 26, East Hants RCMP responded to a rear end collision on Highway 101 in Mount Uniacke.

It was reported that a car ran into the back of a slower moving pickup truck whose driver had activated their hazard lights. The driver of the car stated that he didn’t have time to slow down or move over.

By law, if travelling less than 70 km/h on a 100 series highway, one must activate their hazard lights, which the driver of the truck did.

Fortunately, nobody was injured in the collision.

Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon occurrence on our highways.

East Hants RCMP wants to remind the public to be aware of their surroundings while operating a motor vehicle and to change their driving habits when driving in adverse weather conditions.


Over the past week, East Hants RCMP members responded to 20 motor vehicle collisions. Most were directly related to adverse winter weather driving conditions.

Of those 20 motor vehicle collisions, EHS and various East Hants County volunteer fire departments also attended the scenes.

East Hants RCMP is urging the public to adjust their driving habits and/or to refrain from driving during severe winter conditions unless absolutely necessary.
