Police are reminding the public that there will be a large number of visitors in the area for this week’s Friday the 13th motorcycle rally in Port Dover.
There will be a highly visible police presence to ensure the safety of those in attendance and to assist with traffic related issues.
“As motorcycle enthusiasts descend on Port Dover, there will be an increase in motorcycle traffic and the OPP is asking all drivers to take those two extra seconds before making a lane change or proceeding through an intersection. Those two seconds can make the difference between life and death,” said Inspector Joseph Varga, detachment commander, Norfolk County OPP,in a press release.
Vehicle owners and operators are being asked to be aware of no parking signage and tow away zones. All vehicles will be removed at the owner’s expense.
Police have also closed the airspace in the surrounding area for Sept. 13.
During the events of Friday the 13th, air space is closed for four nautical miles from the centre of town in Port Dover to 2000 feet above surface. This will reduce any conflicts with other Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), drones, or low flying air craft.
