City of Moose Jaw Encourages Safe Winter Driving
MOOSE JAW - The City of Moose Jaw reminds drivers and pedestrians to take extra care when on streets and sidewalks during this winter season. Here are a few winter safety tips to remember:
- Yield to pedestrians at crosswalks – Pedestrians may cross at corners, painted markings on the road and at safety lights. You must stop before the crosswalk and remain there until all pedestrians are safely across the road.
- Watch other motorists – If you are unsure why a vehicle has slowed down or stopped, use caution, slow down and be prepared to stop in case the vehicle is stopped for a pedestrian. Never pass another vehicle when it is stopped for pedestrians. You will have little time to react if someone crosses into your lane.
- Be aware of left turns at multi-lane street intersection – When waiting to turn left at an intersection, be especially aware of pedestrians crossing the street you are turning onto.
- Take extra care in school zones and playgrounds – Young children sometimes don’t pay attention to oncoming vehicles. Anticipate someone crossing the street and slow down. Please remember to slow down in designated school zones.
The City of Moose Jaw Engineering department is committed to keeping our streets safe with sanding and snow removal plans. Please do your part and look out for each other.
