Ice safety

The Ontario Provincial Police would like to remind the community of the importance of the awareness of changing ice conditions before venturing out onto ice covered bodies of water. Do not travel on ice alone and make sure someone is aware of your travel plans before making your trip. Stay clear of areas such as rivers and avoid the narrows between lakes as they can produce unsafe ice conditions, and always check the ice. Be sure to obey all ice crossing signage, remembering, safety first.

Drivers reminded of traffic light rules

The Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to remind drivers of the rules of the road involving flashing and blank traffic lights after a number of complaints and near-collisions were recently reported.

Drivers encountering a flashing red light must come to a complete stop and proceed through the intersection only when it is safe to do so. Drivers encountering a yellow — or amber — flashing light at an intersection must drive with caution when approaching and moving through the intersection.

Drivers may encounter blank traffic lights during an electrical power loss. In these situations drivers must yield the right-of-way to vehicles in the intersection and to vehicles entering the intersection from their right. Drivers are advised to exercise caution and to treat the intersection as they would an intersection with all-way stop signs.

 

In the event you are reporting an occurrence that does not require immediate police assistance please call 1-888-310-1122. 

Should you wish to speak to someone at the Killaloe Detachment contact 613-757-2600.
