A reminder of some new road rules that came into effect with the new year at pedestrian and school crossings. You now have to wait until everyone has cleared the entire roadway before proceeding through; the old law allowed you to move through the crossing once pedestrians had cleared your side of the roadway. Drivers will be fined $150 to $500 and 3 demerit points for offences at school crossings and at crosswalks where there are traffic signals. Fines are doubled in Community Safety Zones, near schools and public areas. These areas are clearly marked with signs. Click here for more information.
