February Road Safety – KEEP YOUR DISTANCE

February 7, 2020

NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – The Road Safety theme for February is “Keep your Distance.”

Be sure to leave enough space between you and the vehicle ahead of you. Following too close, or Tailgating, puts you at risk of a collision.

In winter weather conditions, it takes vehicles longer to stop, so be sure to give yourself extra time, leave extra space between you and vehicle ahead of you, and slow down.

Leave room for plows - Give snow plows plenty of space! When approaching a plow from behind, slow down, stay back and be patient. And NEVER pass a snow plow! It is extremely dangerous and could result in a severe or even fatal collision.

The Road Safety public awareness campaign aims to promote safe driving behaviours and make roads in North Grenville safer for all users.

The North Grenville Road Safety Campaign Committee is comprised of the Municipality of North Grenville, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, the Grenville County Ontario Provincial Police, and the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.

For more details on the campaign visit the webpage at www.northgrenville.ca/roadsafety.
