INFO – Ontario Provincial Police News Portal [HIGHWAY SAFETY DIVISION HEADQUARTERS] OPP LOOKING FOR DRIVERS TO “MOVE OVER” THIS LONG WEEKEND
(AURORA, ON) – As the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) gears up for a busy Civic Holiday Long Weekend, they are giving the public a heads-up on what dangerous driving habits they’ll be watching out for and what positive driving behaviours they will be expecting from motorists throughout the province.
One important law the OPP will be looking for drivers to adhere to is Ontario’s Move Over law. This law applies to all motorists who are approaching a police, fire or ambulance vehicle in the same direction of travel, stopped on the roadside with its lights flashing. Drivers in this situation are required to slow down and pass with caution, but if the road has multiple lanes, drivers must move over into another lane, if it can be done safely.
GUEST – Actress Shirley Douglas, OC
TOPIC – Actress Shirley Douglas, OC, will be the featured speaker at the August 6th Hiroshima-Nagasaki commemoration at Toronto City Hall, beginning at 6:45 p.m. Shirley will call on the Harper government to take a leading role in the world-wide movement to abolish nuclear weapons.
INFO – A participant in Ban the Bomb marches in England in the 1950s, Shirley Douglas founded the Canadian chapter of Performing Artists for Nuclear Disarmament during the height of the Cold War in 1983. She has joined over 675 fellow Members of the Order of Canada who have appealed to the federal government to take a leading role in international negotiations to achieve nuclear disarmament.
