Notice and Reminders from the Public Works Roads Department – Slow Down & Help Our Snow Plow Operators Do Their Job Safely
February 2 - February 4
The Six Nations Roads Department is sending a friendly reminder to the community to slow down and give snow plow operators space and time to clear over 70 different roads in our community. Snow plows typically travel below posted speed limits, as it is more effective for cleaning roads and applying salt and sand. Crowding, tailgating or passing a snow plow can be very dangerous, please do not pass a snow plow at any time. If you encounter a snow plow, please be patient as our drivers are working long hours in poor driving conditions to make it safer for those driving on the roads.
- Listen to the weather forecast before you get in your vehicle, and adjust your drive accordingly.
- Ensure you have good visibility. Before you head out, clean your wiper blades and windshield, and ensure you have a snow brush and ice scraper in your vehicle.
- Keep the washer fluid topped up. If you experience heavy volumes of snow and ice, opt for winter windshield washer fluid or de-ice solution,which can withstand colder temperatures.
- Do not plow snow onto or across the road.
- Please do not leave parked vehicles on the road, they can interfere with our snow plows ability to safely and efficiently clear our roads.
- Heavy snowfall can cause power outages. For live updates and to report for outages please call 1-800-434-1235. You can also check the Hydro One Outage Map at: https://www.hydroone.com/power-outages-and-safety/stormcentre-outage-map?bodyOnly=true/
