Brockville Police fielded numerous calls yesterday concerning residents having difficulties travelling on certain streets.
With the amount of snow that fell in a short period of time, it was difficult for all streets to be plowed in a timely fashion. Other than difficulties with traffic flow in some areas, we were incident free. Only one minor motor vehicle accident was reported for the day.
Police remind people of the importance concerning removing snow from their vehicle windows under these circumstances. Visibility is already compromised when snow is falling, being able to see all other traffic is vital to everyone’s safety.
Don’t forget to leave extra room between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. More distance is required to stop and to react soon enough to another driver’s unforeseen actions.
