OCIPT to host free events in Woodstock, Ingersoll and Tillsonburg to promote safe winter driving

Local residents are invited to attend one of three free Touch-a-Plow events being hosted by the Oxford County Injury Prevention Team (OCIPT). The events are intended to provide adults and kids alike with the opportunity to get up close, touch and even sit inside a real-life snowplow while raising awareness about safe winter driving practices. The three events will be hosted in Woodstock on January 3, Ingersoll on January 4 and Tillsonburg on January 5.

Residents are also encouraged to bring along their skates to take advantage of the free public skates that follow the Touch-a-Plow events in each location.
