City of Ottawa pilots pedestrian safety guard on snowplow

By CBC News Ottawa, February 8, 2018

The City of Ottawa is piloting a new pedestrian safety guard on one of its snowplows this season and one city councillor hopes to see them on all large city vehicles once the pilot is complete.

In 2016 city staff rejected the idea of installing safety guards, but several weeks ago a private U.S-based company sent one to Ottawa for free.

Staff agreed to give it a try.
