News Share the road SHARE ON: Kenny Trenton, contributor, Wednesday, Jun. 21st, 2017 Photo: Supplied by Kenny Trenton Three local organizations want to remind everyone to share the road. The Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit says with the nicer weather, motorists can expect to see more cyclists and pedestrians on the road. The H.K.P.R. Health Unit also reminds drivers it’s the law to have at least a metre of distance between your vehicle and a cyclist or pedestrian. The Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. says pedestrians should only be crossing at marked crosswalks. The O.P.P. also reminds everyone that using a handheld device while driving is illegal. The Haliburton Real Easy Ryders Cycling Club suggests cyclists have to follow the same rules as motorists. That means stopping at stop signs, and signalling a turn, for example. All organizations suggests motorists, cyclists and pedestrians make eye contact before making their next move.
