Comox Valley RCMP is reminding drivers that you shouldn’t enter an intersection unless you can make it across.

Constable Rob Gardner says there’s been a spike in people pulling into intersections and blocking traffic. He says you should never enter an intersection if you can’t clear it.

Gardner says it’s important to look ahead and if the line of traffic ahead of you is not moving, just wait at the stop line until it’s convenient to move on.

Gardner notes it’s also important to be patient if the car in front of you doesn’t move into the intersection – there is likely a good reason why they are waiting.
