New Glasgow Regional Police are reminding motorists and pedestrians to drive and walk with caution today. Heavy rain will cause reduced visibility and slippery conditions for both motorists and pedestrians.
If you have to travel today check road conditions and drive with caution. Visibility will also be an issue. Motorists are asked to watch for pedestrians and other vehicles. Pedestrians are reminded to use crosswalks and walk with caution
Heavy rain has been forecasted for most of today and motorists are asked to slow down and adjust their speed. Speed, in conjunction with water on the road, can result in a vehicle hydroplaning. This occurs when a layer of water forms between the tires and the roadway, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. If you find yourself hydroplaning, take your foot off the gas pedal and let your vehicle slow down until the tires make contact with the road surface.
