Quathiaski Cove Road and Rudder Road Intersection

Over the last few months the Detachment has received complaints from various community members regarding motorists and cysclists failing to stop at the stop sign located at the bottom of Quathiaski Cove Road leading to the Ferry terminal. Due to the amount of heavy traffic at ferry arrival and departure times, this intersection has the potential to be the scene of a serious crash. The risk of a serious crash increases considerably when vehicles and cyclists are failing to stop at the intersection. The Detachment would like to remind all drivers and cyclists of the requirement to come to a complete stop at the stop sign and to proceed only when safe to do so. While Detachment Members do not want to be fining any drivers or cyclists, everyone is reminded that provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act prescribe a fine of $167.00 for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Should anyone have any questions or concerns please contact or come by the Detachment.
