“Resident Dash Pass” information for Port Dover residents on Friday the 13th…

General Questions….
What is Friday the 13th in Port Dover?

Friday the 13th in Port Dover is the largest motorcycle event in Canada. In good weather, thousands and thousands of bikes and bikers ride to Port Dover and tens of thousands of others visit Port Dover.

What is the “Resident Dash Pass”?

The “Resident Dash Pass” is a simple way to let Port Dover residents pass through police traffic controls on Friday the 13ths as quickly as possible.  Residents place the pass on their dashboard allowing police to move traffic more quickly. (Anyone riding a motorcycle doesn’t need a pass.)

Is this “Resident Dash Pass” different than the last one?

Yes. There were a lot of old passes in circulation, so to tell the difference between old passes and new passes, the new ‘Resident Dash Pass’ sits on your dashboard rather than hanging from your mirror. But it works the same way… police can wave you through roadblocks more easily than requesting ID from every car and this helps keep traffic moving.

What if I lose or forget by Resident Dash Pass?

Your Drivers License showing a Port Dover home address inside the road blocks will allow you entry into Port Dover on Friday the 13th.

Did my old Resident Pass expire?

Yes. The last Resident Pass expired in October 2017. A new Resident Dash Pass was issued by Norfolk County with the May 2018 water bills for affected Port Dover residents.

What day is the Resident Dash Pass needed?

Resident Dash Pass is used to help traffic flow on Friday the 13th only. No pass is needed to drive into town on Thursday the 12th or Saturday the 14th.

Where can I get a map of road closures in Port Dover?

The police always are concerned about safety and could close a street if that is required but a map of street closures for past events is at this link  >>   Oct2017

I run a business and need to get employees to work on Friday the 13th… what do I do?

A special BUSINESS DASH PASS is being issued for July 2018 and future events. All vehicles with this pass will be able to enter Port Dover. Traffic is expected to be heavier than normal… allow extra time. Vehicles will need a legal parking spot when they get into Port Dover. Business owners must collect the ‘Business Dash Pass’ from their employees to reuse at the next event.

I live in Port Dover but didn’t get a Resident Dash Pass… what do I do?

Two Resident Dash Passes were included in water bills from ERTH Solutions in May 2018 sent to affected residents of Port Dover.
