On a different note, my friends at OPP Dufferin have informed us that we are having a rash of “break and enter” cases in the County right now. Please make sure doors and windows are securely locked and items put away. Let your neighbour know if you are going to be away. Outside motion lights are a deterrent at night and I now have motion lights inside as well. Be sure these are near an entrance door to be more effective. Check with your Community Safety Officer for other steps you can take.
Brake while the car is still straight, before steering for turns or curves. Brake early so vehicle speed is stabilized through the corner. (This tip comes to you from Doug Annette and the Skid Control School at Oakville, Ont. www.skidcontrolschool.com)
For those who do not have access to a computer, our forms are still available at Mono Plaza and OPP at Primrose. Otherwise use our web site on the Internet.
