Sharing the Roads

Sharing the Roads

Thanks to all the drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists everyone else who help keep safe us and our roadways clean. And thanks to those who encourage others to do the same.

Whether you are driving, walking, biking, or jogging, please remember that our roads are shared by ALL!  Please respect one another and obey the rules of the road!

We don’t want to see innocent people hurt while enjoying our beautiful nature. If we need to call the proper enforcement authorities, we will.

For Pedestrians

  • Walk on the left side of the road so that cars aren’t coming up behind you.

  • Make sure drivers see you before you cross the road. If the driver is stopped, make eye contact before you step out.

  • Wear bright or light-coloured clothing or reflective strips, especially at dusk or after dark.

  • Watch for traffic turning at intersections or turning into and leaving driveways.

  • Leash-walk your dog.

For Drivers – Trucks, Cars, Motorcycles, Snowmobiles and Off-Road Vehicles

  • Be alert. Look out for pedestrians, especially when turning and going around corners and over hills.

  • Watch for children, dogs, bikes, and wildlife.

  • Stay within the 30-kilometer speed limit posted on signs along all roads. Drive at a speed that will let you stop safely, whether roads are wet or dry.

For Cyclists

  • A bicycle is a vehicle, just like a car or truck and cyclists are obliged to follow the same rules of the road.

  • Ride on the right and stay close to the right edge of the road whenever possible.
