What not to do when caught in Bruce Hwy traffic jam

HERE'S an important tip to motorists caught in traffic on the Bruce Highway, just because your car is a four-wheel drive doesn't mean you can go off-road.

Mike Clayton of Clayton's Towing said a dozen cars, mostly four-wheel drives, had to be towed out of forests after a crash near Bells Reach late yesterday caused extensive traffic jams.

"Yesterday we were pretty busy pulling people out of forestry," he said.
