This may sound like a skipping CD but the Pictou County region continues to be under a Winter Storm Warning, motorists and pedestrians should walk/drive with caution.

New Glasgow Regional Police officers have currently reported at 2017/02/16 at 6:40am that streets, roads and sidewalks continue to be snow covered and slippery. In addition, some areas are experiencing blowing snow conditions causing reduced visibility. Freezing rain has also been reported in some areas.

If you have to travel today, plan ahead, check weather conditions, cancellations, delayed openings, and drive to the conditions. Some sidewalks are not plowed and pedestrians that need to travel should also walk with extreme caution.
Motorists are also asked to travel with extreme caution due to high snowbanks.

Parents and guardians are also asked to make sure children are not playing at near streets and roads in snowbanks.
Residents are also advised that the winter parking ban will be enforced during the night and early mornings from 1am to 7am to allow Public Works crews to properly clear the streets and sidewalks throughout the towns. Vehicles must also be off streets under section 139 of the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act where tickets can be issued and vehicles can be towed any time, day or night, if vehicles are parked in a way that interferes with snow clearing. It is critical that vehicles are removed from streets and sidewalk areas during the snow storm to allow crews to safely maintain priority streets and emergency routes.
