OPP have stopped being escorts

Superloads say goodbye to police escorts in Ontario

All escorts must now be certified and will take the former place of OPP officials.

The one concern voiced was that flashing yellow lights might not carry the same weight of seeing the red and blues from a LEO. Which, I would tend to agree with, every tow truck operator, construction vehicles, buses and cranes all have yellow blinking lights. I dont think people pay enough attention to the blinky things.

Although, my buddy was 16’ wide with a police escort, and a four wheeler ducked around the officer and scooted around the piece he was carrying on the shoulder. The officer left being an escort and pulled over the idiot, then came back to resume escorting.

The one idea brought up was a special colour light for escorts, I have my doubts on that, the general motoring public can barely go up the road now, we don’t need to confuse them worse

I am seriously (maybe :D ) going to look into this escort course. I know another truck driver that I could partner with. It would seem to me that an investment of 50 thousand each could get us started. He is always looking for the next "big" thing to start up.

Have you run OSOW before? I have, but I’ve never needed an escort yet. I’m pretty sure @Hillbilly Canuck has used escorts before
