**** HRP Media Release
Halifax Regional Police are advising pedestrians and motorist to use caution due to the current weather conditions throughout the region.
Given the current rain and wind we are experiencing, we have received a number of reports throughout the region of loose debris in and around the roadways causing safety hazards and many intersections are without power.
We are advising the public, if they are able, to stay off the roadways at this time.
If you need to be out, please use caution and remember visibility becomes reduced in rain. Motorists, always drive to conditions, take extra precaution to use turn signals and watch for pedestrians and other road users.
If you find yourself at a failed traffic light, treat it as a four-way stop. The car that arrives first goes first. If two cars arrive at the same time, the car on the right goes first.
