REGINA, Sask. — Snowplows in Saskatchewan may be easier to spot this winter, thanks to the addition of wig wag snowplow lights.

The Saskatchewan Department of Highways and Transportation claims the new lighting system, located at the upper rear corners of the equipment, will better warn drivers when approaching a plow, improving highway safety in the process.

The department is reminding drivers to be patient when stuck behind plows. Snowplow drivers are required to pull over every 10 to 12 kilometres to let traffic safely pass.
