Driver Fails to Comply with Move Over Law #nltraffic


On September 13 RNC in Corner Brook conducted a traffic stop on the Trans-Canada Highway near Steady Brook, after monitoring traffic for “move over” law. Police observed a vehicle approaching at high rate of speed and failed to move over to open lane and reduce speed.

The male driver, a 35 year old resident of Corner Brook was operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s licence (had not been licenced since 2005), operating a Motor Vehicle without a valid insurance policy and failing to comply with the “Move Over” law under Section 121.1 of the Highway Traffic Act.

His vehicle was seized and impounded due to no insurance policy in effect.
