Sergeant Bob’s Safety Tip of the MonthVisit the Senior Safety Tips website
Highway Closures During The Winter Months
When confronted with an aggravating road closure, a driver might be tempted to ignore signs and barriers. Think carefully about your actions any time of the year, but especially during winter months.
Police services close public roadways when driving conditions are so poor that accidents are likely to occur. Think of what may lie ahead of you. With high winds, blowing snow or fog, drivers might not see beyond their windshield to stay in their lane or avoid oncoming traffic.
If common sense and self-preservation isn’t enough, in Ontario the Highway Traffic Act requires that you do not enter a closed highway.
