Snowmobile Safety Week is Here
Two local organizations are recognizing this week as Provincial Snowmobile Safety Week.
Its a joint effort by the OPP and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs.
Their message to snowmobilers is focus on their own safety, and the safety of others.
They say that with the current weather, it is to still unsafe to ride on any water ways.
They also remind people not to ride in the dark, speed or ride impaired.
The OPP says 58 per cent of snowmobiling deaths involved drugs or alcohol, 57 per cent involved speeding, and 58 percent involved riding in the dark.
