HRP: Significant water pooling on roads throughout the area

We would like to remind motorists that with the rain today visibility is reduced. Water is pooling on the roadways in many locations throughout the region.

Allow extra time for your commute so you don’t feel that you have to rush. Driving conditions can vary dramatically in our region and require the driver’s full attention. Road conditions often warrant a significantly slower speed than what is posted. When the roads are slippery, a vehicle’s stopping distance increases so allow extra space between you and the road user ahead.

Motorists are reminded to keep a watchful eye out for pedestrians, particularly at intersections and crosswalks, and pedestrians are reminded to make eye contact with drivers and wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop before attempting to cross the road.  

We thank everyone for doing their part to help keep our roads safe.
