With Haliburton County roads about to get busier in the summer months, Haliburton Highlands OPP is sending an important message out early.

Construction zones and road crews are common during the summer season, so drivers are reminded to drive slowly. Take caution and follow construction crew directions and signs.

You could be facing a 500 dollar fine and three demerit points if you don’t. Speeding fines are also doubled in a construction zone when there are crews on scene.
