New Laws - New Devices

New rules at pedestrian crossovers and school crossings in effect starting January 1, 2016

Drivers (including cyclists) must stop and yield the whole roadway at pedestrian crossovers and at school crossings where there is a a crossing guard displaying a school crossing stop sign.

The new law also provides road authorities the ability to install new types of pedestrian crossovers in addition to the existing crossovers.  Lean more about pedestrian crossovers.

It is up to both drivers and pedestrians to keep everyone safe.  More about the new law at the Ministry of Transportation website
