  • Inform the attendant if there is a spill. Gasoline station attendants are trained to deal with these situations properly and efficiently.
  • Explain to children that it is not safe for them to handle the nozzle. Don't expose your child to the potential risk of being splashed with gasoline or inhaling fumes.
  • Never jam the nozzle handles open with an object. Jamming the nozzle handle open greatly increases the chance of spills.
  • Do not overfill your tank. Overflow and spillage can impact the local environment.
  • Stay by the nozzle handle during fueling. In some cases, static electricity may be generated as you move around or get in and out of your vehicle. When you return and touch the nozzle handle, the static electricity could be released, igniting the gasoline vapours and causing a flash fire.
  • It is dangerous to use a cell phone while fueling.
  • When filling extra containers, remove them from your vehicle and place them on the ground. This will allow any potential static electricity to discharge and keep any possible spills out of your vehicle.

TRAFFIC LAWS

 

Here are some traffic laws that responsible drivers should be aware of:

  • You must not use your vehicle to tow any person for example on skis, riding a toboggan, motorcycle or bicycle.
  • It is against the law to let any person ride in a house trailer when it is being towed.
  • No one under the age of 14 may operate a tractor or any self-propelled implement of husbandry on a highway.
  • If the view from your inside rear-view mirror is blocked, you must attach an outside rear-view mirror on each side of the vehicle.
  • Commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of 4,500 kilograms or more must report to a vehicle inspection station when required to do so by a sign and flashing lights.
