TIPS FOR OUR SENIOR CITIZENS

Fraudulent scams affect seniors across the country in many different ways. Three of the most common scams are:

  1. Telemarketing fraud
  2. Home renovation fraud
  3. Phony bank manager

Seniors are the most vulnerable target for con artists. In a public education video, a convicted fraud artist states, “Seniors are too nice to kick you out of their home, so just wait them out until they finally sign the contract.”

TRAFFIC TIPS

Section 141 of the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario deals with turns at intersections.

When making a left turn at an intersection, you have to turn into the left lane of the road you are turning on to. In other words… If you make your left turn and drive directly into the curb lane (where there are more than one lane), you are committing an offence contrary to the Highway Traffic Act and are subject to a fine & points. Likewise when turning right, you must turn directly into the curb lane. If you turn right directly into the left lane (where there are more than one lane), you are committing an offence contrary to the Highway Traffic Act and are subject to a fine & points.

BE SAFE – LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER WHEN CHANGING LANES
