Featured Online First

New Glasgow Regional Police are advising motorists and pedestrians to walk and drive with caution during the winter storm today and into tonight.

Const. Ken MacDonald says blowing snow during driving reduces visibility. Icy road conditions and snow drifts may also exist during travel. If you have to travel, plan ahead, check for cancellations and drive to the conditions. Remember: Ice and snow, take it slow.

Residents are also advised that the overnight winter parking ban will be enforced overnight to allow Public Works crews to properly clear the streets and sidewalks throughout the towns. Vehicles must be off streets during the hours of 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. In addition, under section 139 of the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act, tickets can be issued and vehicles can be towed any time, day or night, if they are parked in a way that interferes with snow clearing.
