Operators of motorized snow vehicles are reminded to take extreme care when crossing a highway, OPP say. If they are covering long distances riders should make rest stops to ensure that they are physically able to control their machines and remain mentally alert.
The OPP encourages the public to enjoy the trails and to operate their machines in a safe and sober manner.
