Sept. 1: New Road Safety Rules as to Tow Trucks Take Effect


Effective Sept. 1, Ontario drivers must slow down and move over when there are tow trucks on the side of the highway with their amber lights flashing. Drivers are already required to slow down and move over for emergency vehicles with red or red and blue flashing lights. The changes to the Highway Traffic Act stipulate that violators will face a minimum fine of $490 and three demerit points.
