OPP says “stay put” on Monday

It’s hard to know if tomorrow’s weather will be as bad as the forecast suggests tonight, but if it is here’s some good advice from the OPP.

OPP East Region is urging motorists to be prepared for deteriorating driving conditions, starting tonight. The forecast calls for significant freezing rain for much of the region followed by snow.

“If you don’t have to go out on the highways tonight or tomorrow, we recommend you stay put until things improve”, said Acting Inspector Marc Hemmerick, East Region OPP Manager of Traffic and Marine Programs. “If you do have be out please go slow, give yourself extra time and leave lots of extra following distance.”

Follow these tips:

  • Avoid unnecessary travel or wait until conditions improve
  • Adjust your driving: Slow down, extra space, no sudden lane changes
  • Full lighting system on
  • Ensure your fuel tank is full and have an emergency travel kit (food, blanket, candle, extra cell phone power) in case you are stranded or stuck
  • Clear ice from all windows and lights. You may have to do this multiple times during a trip.

Please do not call 911 or other police phone lines to ask about road conditions. Those lines are needed for true emergency calls. To learn the latest on road conditions, visit the Ministry of Transportation’s Travel Information site 511on.ca. It’s filled with valuable resources. You can also follow @511ONEastern or @511Ontario.
