Durham Police urge drivers to move cautiously through snow covered traffic lights

Durham police are asking motorists out on the roads today to practice safe driving as last night’s (Mar. 3) blizzard has left traffic lights covered in snow, causing visibility issues.

On Saturday (Mar. 4) at approximately 11 a.m., police tweeted how the impact of the snowstorm has left many traffic lights across the region covered with snow and are advising drivers to be extra cautious at all intersections.

Police are requesting drivers to slow down and clear off all the snow from their vehicles.

Lately, drivers are failing to remove snow from their vehicles, and that build-up has caused snow and ice sheets to hit and crack the windshields of other motorists on highways.

Police aren’t taking these incidents lightly as charges are now being laid on carless drivers.

On Saturday (Feb. 25) 2023 police in Mississauga stopped a car covered in snow from attempting to enter Highway 401, an “expensive lesson” for the driver, who did not have his license or a snow brush to clear off the car. He also was not able to provide proof of insurance and his license plates were expired by a year and a half.
