Keeping Your Family Day Long Weekend a Safe One

Dufferin County, ON (OPP - Dufferin Detachment) This coming Family Day long weekend is faced with various weather conditions throughout the region, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is hoping that everyone takes the time to pay attention to the changes and make it an enjoyable one.


The OPP is reminding people to drive according to the changing road conditions while traveling this long weekend. From reported snow squalls today to extreme cold conditions throughout the weekend can make for some difficult travelling conditions. A reminder to clear all the snow off your vehicles, secure all items stored on the roof racks, check snowmobile trailer lighting and attachment prior to heading out and on your stops along the way.

Some of the waterways and OFSC trails have yet to be safe to travel on. Ensure you are checking with your local ice fishing operators and the local snowmobile clubs before venture out.

As always, travel should include your emergency roadside kit, extra clothing, a full tank of gas and making sure your cellular phones are fully charged.

Final reminders that you can utilize 511.ca and follow the OPP on various twitter accounts as you travel throughout the province.
