Police ask citizens to use caution when driving

March 21, 2016

Snowfall in the CBRM, paired with gusty winds may cause periods of reduced visibility. The Cape Breton Regional Police are advising citizens to use caution when driving.

Stormy weather can bring challenging road conditions; police remind motorists to take the necessary safety precautions. Check weather and road conditions; clear snow and ice from your vehicle; adjust your speed to the conditions; give yourself extra distance to stop; allow for extra travel time in unfavorable conditions; and if possible, avoid driving during the height of any storm weather and wait until plows have completed snow removal.

Citizens are also reminded that winter parking regulations are in effect throughout the CBRM until March 31st; please ensure your vehicle is off the street between the hours of 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM, as well as during any snowfall and within two hours from the time snow stops falling. Police will ticket and tow any vehicles obstructing snow removal efforts.
