Police remind motorists to exercise caution, adjust driving for conditions
February 13, 2015
Current weather conditions are creating poor visibility in areas, and roads are snow covered and slippery; Cape Breton Regional Police urge motorists to take extra caution and adjust for winter driving conditions, which can change quickly. This means slow down, give yourself extra stopping distance, begin stopping well in advance of approaching an intersection, and allow for extra travel time.
If you do not need to travel, police advise waiting until storm conditions subside.
Winter parking regulations remain in effect; ensure vehicles are not parked on the street during snowfall, within two hours of snowfall stopping, and during overnight hours of 1:00 AM – 6:00 AM. Police will ticket and tow any vehicles obstructing snow clearing efforts.
