North East Region OPP is asking drivers to be extra cautious as warmer temperatures and heavy rainfall are causing water pooling on some Parry Sound area roadways.

Police say because the ground is still frozen, the water has no place to go.

“Road crews do their best to dig snowbanks away to channel water off the roads, but sometimes the water will still pool in low lying areas.”

The OPP is reminding drivers to recognize that these pools of water may cause potential dangers to travelling motorists.

For your own safety, and for the safety of others using the roadways, the OPP is urging motorists to please slow down, increase your following distances and watch for standing water on the roadways.
