Community Column by Don Butt (Feb. 2014)
Have just had a message from Constable Paul Nancekevil of Dufferin OPP concerning our bad winter weather. Due to bad visibility and road closures, Paul says, if you really don't have to go out, please don’t. It is worth your life or someone else’ s when you cannot see, even for short Distances. Please remember this and see if we can all make it to spring.
Visually inspect "left, right, straight" before every intersection, on approach and before start-up. Inspect early enough and deep enough to make a difference. (this tip comes to you from Doug Anette and the Skid Control School at Oakville, Ont (www.skidcontrolschool.com)
