TIMMINS POLICE ISSUE TRAFFIC SAFETY REMINDER

The Traffic Section of the Timmins Police Service is issuing a reminder to all area motorists to take the time and effort necessary to adequately clear off your vehicle prior to venturing out onto city streets.

Proper visibility and the ability to see and be seen are hampered by those drivers who insist on proceeding without completing this necessary safety-oriented task.

Motorists who fail to properly remove all snow from their vehicle and then proceed onto our roads become “portable snowstorms” causing visibility issues for every vehicle following in their wake.

When this type of driving behavior is noted, a firm but fair enforcement response from the Timmins Police can be rightfully expected at the roadside.
