Our Latest Advice

National Road Safety Week 2021

National Road Safety Week 2021

Due to the high potential for injury and death, drivers hold a lot of responsibility when operating an automobile. Therefore, it is everyone’s responsibility to take the necessary steps to keep our roads safe; we can do this by understanding and following all respective rules and regulations.

The Canadian Safety Council has designated May 18-24, 2021 as National Road Safety Week. Accordingly, we have compiled a list of 7 road safety practices to help keep our communities safer.

 #1 Don’t Drive Impaired.

Driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs is dangerous and has severe consequences for you and the people around you.

Between 1,250 and 1,500 people are killed, and more than 63,000 are injured each year in Canada by impairment-related crashes.

Do not drive under the influence. Instead, plan ahead – arrange for a designated driver or call a taxi/ride-sharing service.

 # 2 Obey the “Move Over” Law

The “Move Over” Law is designed to protect those who drive emergency and other designated vehicles.

Upon approaching emergency vehicles, including tow trucks, that are stopped on a highway with their emergency lights on, drivers must slow down and proceed with caution, and move to another lane if it is safe to do so.

#3 Be Careful in Construction Zones

-Watch for construction zones*

-Use caution

-Slow down

-Obey construction zone signs

-Obey traffic-control personnel

*Remember – Fines double in construction zones.

#4 Zipper Merge

The “zipper merge” is a late merge strategy where all available lanes of traffic are used right up to the lane closure, where drivers then alternate into the open lane.

This looks like teeth on a zipper coming together. It’s faster, safer, and will reduce congestion.

Please do not try to merge before the bottleneck.

 

# 5 Obey Posted Speed Limits

Always be aware of the posted speed limit of the road you are driving on, and ensure you are abiding by it.

In fact, 27% of traffic fatalities on Canadian roads are the direct result of speeding.

But remember, posted speed limits are set for ideal driving conditions. Therefore, you will need to reduce your speed in unfavourable conditions, such as rain, fog, or snow.

#6 Watch for Wildlife.

Atlantic Canada has a lot of beautiful wildlife; however, these animals can cause havoc on our roadways. Over 45,000 non-fatal collisions with wildlife occur each year.

Most wildlife collisions occur between dawn and dusk in rural areas. So, be sure to watch your speed and scan the environment ahead.

#7 Establish a Reverse Parking Policy at your Office.

Reverse parking is significantly safer and prevents drivers from having to blindly back out of a parking spot.

Rear-end crashes are the most frequently occurring type of collision, accounting for almost 30% of all crashes.

Make your workplace as safe as it can be by preventing employees from driving head-on into a parking spot.
