When you hear a siren

It is wise to review the 'right way' and the 'wrong way' when travelling in Muskoka.

Ontario law requires that drivers pull over when they hear the siren, or see the emergency responder. This is a phenomenal video that illustrates the danger in NOT moving over. Nearly 25 minutes long, it covers the law about pulling over, and how to do so safely. It is a must for all drivers to view as a refresher.

Pay attention to the road and the drivers around you. You might not be the most important vehicle on the road!

This video, A23-2 Parting the seas of traffic, shows the difficulty in getting though the traffic.

Jenn: It is hard to believe that this type of presentation must be made. You would think everyone that drives knows this.

You'd think, fishin' guy!
But they do not.

It seems that when folks get up here to cottage country, they forget all the rules of the road! People are distracted by scenery and passengers, too. (I won't say cell phones as they are now illegal when driving, but there is that, too!)
