Police urge caution on area roadways

Greater Sudbury Police said they received more than 50 reports of motor vehicle collisions between noon Jan. 24 and around 4 p.m. Jan. 25 as the city weathered a winter storm followed by extreme cold.

“Due to inclement weather conditions, roadways are considered poor, with many areas iced up from the freezing temperatures,” a press release from the police service said.

“Drivers are urged to use extreme caution. Drivers are reminded to be cautious as differing conditions exist on area roadways.

“Watch ahead and be mindful of upcoming conditions. Bridges and intersections ice easily. Stopping distances with vehicles ahead must be increased to allow for snow and ice. Slow down and stay safe.”
