Dial 511 for road, weather conditions
OPP Norfolk County Detachment is asking all motorists to get in the mindset of winter driving now BEFORE the snow comes. All too often drivers are caught off guard with the first snow fall and the OPP end up investigating numerous crashes across the county.
If you find yourself having to drive when it is snowing, you can call 511 on any phone to get road and weather conditions before you head out. This number provides motorists with the best information possible in order to help in planning your trips.
The OPP does not want anyone calling the Communications Centre to inquire about road and weather conditions.
