OPP REMINDING MOTORIST TO STAY A SAFE DISTANCE FROM SNOW MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT
(Hawkesbury, ON) With all the snow we have been having in the last month, the Hawkesbury OPP Detachment would like to remind motorists to remain a safe distance from snow maintenance equipment.
Leaving Room for Plows:
Remain a safe distance back from maintenance equipment when you see blue flashing lights. To do the job right, snow plows and salt & sand trucks must travel slower than regular traffic. Stay Well Back to Help Snow Plows do Their Job!
Never pass a snow plow!
It is extremely dangerous to pass either between or around snow plows because of whiteout conditions and the ridge of snow being passed between plows.
At no time should a vehicle pass a snow plow. This could result in a severe, even fatal, collision.
Please remember to slow down and keep a safe distance between other vehicles.
Ontario Provincial Police is reminding motorists that Ontario 511 provides 24/7 information on road conditions and closures.

(Hawkesbury, ON) Members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to encourage everyone to assess and be aware of conditions before venturing out on ice covered bodies of water.
Ice is never 100% safe even though you may have tested the thickness. If you do venture out on the ice, please follow these tips to help keep you safe;
• Check the weather- Do not go out on warm or stormy days
• Do not travel on ice if you have consumed alcohol or drugs
• Do not travel on ice alone or in the dark
• Keep away from unfamiliar paths or ice
• NEVER go out on the ice alone- always have a buddy with you
• Always let someone know your destination and time of return
• Children should be accompanied by an adult when out on the ice
• Carry a small survival kit on your person-including ice picks, rope, a lighter, waterproof matches, magnesium fire starter, pocket knife, compass and whistle
Ice is constantly changing in response to weather and water conditions and is effected by many different factors including thickness, currents, age of the ice, pressure cracks and snow cover.
East Region OPP encourages everyone to stay off the ice when conditions are obviously dangerous especially in the early winter and late spring. If in doubt, Don’t go out!
