0

Daylight Saving Time starts on the 2nd Sunday in March—that’s Sunday, March 8, 2020. Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at 2:00 A.M. On Saturday night, set your clocks forward one hour (i.e., losing one hour) to “spring ahead.”

Change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

  • All alarms wear out; replace yours according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Test all smoke and carbon monoxide alarms at least once a month.
  • Install smoke alarms on every storey of your home and outside all sleeping areas.
  • For best protection, install smoke alarms in every bedroom.
  • Install a carbon monoxide alarm adjacent to all sleeping areas.
  • Dust can affect your alarms. Periodically vacuum the face, and vents of your alarms with a soft bristle brush.
  • Practise your home escape plan with the entire family.

Cyclists, please remember:

  • Bicycles are vehicles
  • Rules of the road are the same, obey all traffic laws
  • Ride on the road in the same direction as vehicles
  • Ride as tight and to the right as safely possible when being passed
  • Always use hand signals to signal directional changes
  • A helmet is the best protection against injury
  • To ensure you have a light and wear reflective clothing during night-riding
  • To ensure you have a functional bell or horn
  • Cannot carry passengers- if your bicycle is only meant for one person
  • Have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers
  • Cannot ride on controlled access highways (e.g. 400-series highways)

As a cyclist, you must share the road with others (e.g., cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles, etc.). Under Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act (HTA), a bicycle is a vehicle, just like a car or truck.

Motorists, please remember:

  • To watch for cyclists and pedestrians
  • Follow and pass at a safe distance
  • Leave a minimum of 1 metre of space when passing cyclists
  • Check blind spots before opening car door
  • Signal all directional changes
  • Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicles
