Stay safe on winter roads
|While driving on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, remember:|
|Check road conditions before you head out by calling 511 or at 511.gov.ns.ca|
|Adjust your speed|
|Keep your vehicle in top working order for winter conditions|
|Make sure you have winter tires installed|
|Be prepared for changing conditions|

Respect road closures — it's the law!
Parks Canada will close sections of the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park for safety reasons.
When the road is closed, signs are activated and barriers are put in place.
Never enter a closed area. It is against the law and puts your safety at risk, and the safety of those responding to your rescue.
Safety is Parks Canada's top priority.
