The Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. is warning people to stay off the ice.

The detachment is making the suggestion after 12 people went through the ice is separate incidents this month.

The incidents happened on: 12 Mile Lake, Boshkung Lake, and Kashagawigamog Lake.

Community Safety Officer Dianna Dauphinnee  says even though ice may look safe for snowmobiles and A.T.V’s, it can be deceiving.

Dauphinee adds before you hit the trails, you should be aware of the temperature.

Dauphinee also recommends never going on ice alone, bringing a floater suit and an ice pick with you in case you go through the ice.

Environment Canada is calling for temperatures to be above the freezing point at various points next week.
