On Highway 401 and Dixon Road early on Monday, November 15, an impaired driver managed to wedge his car between two safety barriers at an on/off highway ramp. OPP reported that he was driving along a "grassy ditch" before colliding with the barriers.
Ontario's weather is calling for lots of snow that could make it more difficult to drive since the roads are expected to be slushy.
Ontario Provincial Police are advising drivers to have their headlights on, give themselves plenty of distance between cars and drive carefully on the roads.
