Close call for RNC during traffic stop


RNC Traffic Services had a close call during a traffic stop on the Trans Canada Highway today.


A passing vehicle came very close to the police cruiser. The tire marks near the vehicle demonstrate just how close a driver came to making contact with an officer.


Motorists are required to reduce the speed of the vehicle to a speed that is at least 30 kilometres an hour less than the speed limit and, where necessary stop and pass the emergency vehicle or designated vehicle only if it is safe to do so and change lanes if there is another lane for travelling in the same direction, or otherwise place as much distance as possible in the same lane between your vehicle and the emergency vehicle, only if it is safe to do so.
