The Northumberland Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are stressing Safety First Over The New Years Holiday.
Police say there are three areas to concentrate on: Driving Safety, Motorized Snow Vehicle Safety and Ice Safety.
OPP say have a safe plan for celebrating– plan ahead for your post-party ride; check weather conditions in advance of travel by calling 511–and drive according to conditions.
When near water, remember that despite the recent cold snap, ice is only now forming– and may not be as thick as you’d suspect. Always cross ice in good visibility and never do it alone.
Over the holidays there’s increased use of motorized snow vehicles. Share the trail with cross-country skiers and hikers. Get permission to cross private property, stay sober and only sonwmobile in conditions of good visibility. Don’t let enthusiasm for the sport fog your goggles.
