Corner Brook RNC Reminding Motorists to Practice Safe Driving #nltraffic

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary in Corner Brook is reminding motorists to exercise safe driving habits on roadways and at intersections.

Motorists are reminded:

  • When merging onto roadways always yield the right of way to on-coming traffic.

  • Before proceeding to turn right at a red light; make a complete stop and yield right of way to motorists with the green light.

  • Pay particular attention to posted signage including: “No Left Turn”, “Stop” and “Do Not Enter”.

  • Yield right of way to pedestrians at marked crosswalks.

  • Use extra care and caution in school zones and adjust speeds accordingly.

  • Stop for school buses that have red lights flashing and are in the process of loading and unloading students.

The RNC Corner Brook Region will be stepping up patrols at intersections and in school zones over the coming weeks and months to ensure the safety of the public throughout our region.

We are also reminding motorists of the dangers of driving while distracted by mobile phones.
