Kennetcook man gets seven-day driving suspension

KENNETCOOK: A 49-year-old Kennetcook man was issued a seven-day driving suspension recently.

East Hants RCMP S/Sgt. Cory Bushell said the suspension came after local officers assisted N.S. Conservation Officers at an incident.

He said the incident took place on Hwy 354 in Kennetcook.


S/Sgt. Bushell said the Conservation Officer detained an ATV operator on suspicion of impaired driving. 

“The driver, a 49-year-old Kennetcook man, was given a road-side screen test to which he blew a warn,” he said.

He said as a result, the man was given a seven-day suspension and his ATV towed.
