Winter Driving Safety Reminder

Staff

dec 11 snow2Grey County OPP are reminding drivers to be cautious when approaching intersections, especially during the winter months.

In winter, the approaches to a stop sign can become more slippery than the rest of the road.  When approaching an intersection you should decelerate well in advance to avoid a possible slippery condition.

During a power outage when traffic signals are not functioning, the intersection becomes a four-way stop.  Even when you have the right-of- way at a stop condition, always watch the vehicle approaching the intersection to make sure they come to a complete stop safely.

If snow banks on the shoulders of the road are reducing your visibility, edge out very slowly without encroaching into the on-coming driving lane, and only proceed when you can see that it’s safe to do so.
