As of January 1, 2016, did you know……
There are many new highway traffic laws that take effect tomorrow, January 1, 2016!
One in particular affects Pedestrian Crosswalks and School Crossings. Effective Friday January 1, 2016 drivers will not be allowed to proceed into school crossings or pedestrian crosswalks until the Pedestrian has completely crossed the road. The entire road will need to be yielded.
Previous legislation allowed drivers to yield only the half of the road that the pedestrian was entering.
Please read more on this law and other new laws on the Ministry of Transportation website.
