NO LEFT TURN ON RED

It’s OFFICIAL! Drivers are no longer permitted to make a left turn at the downtown Kentville intersections of Main/Aberdeen & Webster/Aberdeen, while the stop light is RED! For a number of years, drivers have been able to make the left turns on a red light, but due to an increase of accidents as a result of this practice, it is no longer allowed. The new bylaw is now in effect, and signs are now in place. Kentville Police Service has said that (for a short period of time), education will be the focus. Then, tickets will be issued to those who continue to make the left turn, during a red light.
