Road safety on forestry roads
Wood cargo transporters, silviculture workers, fishermen, hunters, lovers of the great outdoors … forestry roads are well travelled and road safety in the forest is everyone’s responsibility.
The Québec Highway Safety Code applies on forestry roads.
At all times, you must:
- Have in your possession a valid driver’s licence, the registration certificate for the vehicle, and insurance certification.
- Keep to the right, particularly on curves and hills.
- Abide by the speed limit of 70 km/hr on the road and 30 km/hr on bridges.
- Drive appropriately for road conditions.
- Wear your seat belt.
- Obey drinking and driving laws.
In addition to these regulations, some other safety rules apply:
- Keep headlights on at all times.
- When approaching a bridge, slow down and yield to heavy vehicles.
- Park the vehicle on the side of the road so that it is visible and well clear of traffic; avoid parking on curves, hills or bridges.
- Use a two-way (CB) radio to indicate your presence and position.
