**New Rule for Passing Roadside Workers and Snowplows**
Effective September 1st, 2023, when motorists pass a stopped roadside worker’s vehicle with its lights flashing, the driver must:
- Move over to leave one lane of space, if possible, when passing a roadside worker’s vehicle;
- Allow a vehicle to safely merge to leave one lane of space; and
- Slow down to 60 km/h or the posted speed limit, which is lower, when passing in the adjacent lane, nearest the stopped vehicle.
Violators that choose to ignore this can see a fine of $203.00 plus a surcharge and 3 demerit points.
Rules for vehicles passing snowplows have also changed. Drivers cannot pass a snowplow if:
- The view along the side of the snowplow is obstructed;
- Overtaking/passing the snow plow would impede its operation; or
- Overtaking/passing the snowplow in unsafe.
The penalty for a violation is $270.00 fine plus surcharge and 3 demerit points.
Please share the road and drive safe.
