A reminder to all drivers and cyclists!

as of January 2016, all motorists must stop and yield the whole roadway at:

  • Pedestrian crossovers;

  • School Crossings where there is a guard displaying a school crossing stop sign.

Motorists can NO longer turn left, right or proceed through a crosswalk on the clear half of the roadway.

You now MUST wait until the entrie crosswalk is empty of both pedestrians and the School Crossing Guard.

Take notice of whether there is a guard on duty

Obey the Highway Traffic Act and wait for guard to completely exit the crosswalk
