Safety tips for winter driving :
- Check the weather forecast before travelling.
- Reduce speed: when road conditions are poor, it takes longer to stop.
- When approaching railway crossings, turn off your radio and heating fans so you can listen for trains.
- Look for railway warning signs and signals and remember that snow may cover train tracks at a crossing.
- Use winter tires.
- Do not drive impaired: exhaustion, alcohol, and drugs such as marijuana reduce your ability to pay attention, react quickly, and make safe driving choices.
- Stalls or stuck vehicles must be left behind. Once safe, immediately notify emergency responders by calling 911.
- Be rail-smart this winter: Stop. Look. Listen. Live.

We want everyone to Be Rail Smart; Stop. Look. Listen. Live

No Motorized Vehicles on Ring Dyke 08.05.21
It is important to remind everyone that Manitoba Infrastructure prohibits the use of motorized vehicles on ring dykes in Southern Manitoba. Compliance with this is especially important during the extreme dryness we have had, where ATVs and other recreational vehicles may inadvertently cause a fire to start. Considering the current water shortage, a fire started on the dyke could have serious consequences for our residents.
The Town has asked the Morris detachment of the RCMP to increase enforcement on individuals who continue to operate vehicles on the dyke during this critical time. However, we hope that vehicle operators recognize the seriousness of the conditions, and conduct themselves accordingly.
