Operation Impact in Effect This Weekend

About 50 drivers have tickets to pay today after being caught speeding or with other car infractions on Highway One yesterday. City Police are conducting Operation Impact this holiday weekend to enforce safe driving. Sgt. Jeff LaFrance with the Saint John Traffic Unit, tells CHSJ news most of the tickets they have issued so far were for speeding--but--says he's not sure what impact it has had.

Police are conducting spot checks throughout the city to check for seat belt use, drinking while driving and speeding. Fines for going over the limit range from 172 dollars to more than 600 dollars.
