Winter is here and we need to adjust our driving habits for the changing road and weather conditions. While County crews are out plowing, grading and sanding the roads, please be patient and allow our crews plenty of space to work.
Top five things you can do to help keep operators and other drivers safe:
- SLOW DOWN
- Watch for equipment turning
- Remember, flashing amber and red means snowplow ahead
- Leave 15 metres between your vehicle and any equipment
- Do not pass a snowplow. Operators will pull over when it is safe to allow vehicles to pass
