Police are warning drivers to drive for the road conditions after a youth, who was using a crosswalk in New Minas, was hit by the mirror of a vehicle about 5:20 p.m. on Jan. 8.

The 16-year-old boy had activated the yellow lights, but the driver could not stop in time. The pedestrian received bruising.

“Slow down,” says Const. Blair MacMurtery. “You can’t stop on a dime in the rain and snow. Drivers are not driving for the conditions.”

MacMurtery went on to note, “ pedestrians have a right to use crosswalks. That’s why they’re there.”

He added that many rear end collisions are due to driver inattention to road conditions.

“We need to be vigilant.”
