Winter is coming, let’s talk about driving safely

During the first snowfall every year, Prince George RCMP encounters many collisions that could have been avoided by drivers taking extra caution. Leaving early, slowing down and driving to the road and weather conditions are key to arriving to your destination safely.

Proper equipment such as good winter tires, windows free of frost and snow and using your headlights also increase your chances of avoiding collisions.

We want to remind drivers it is especially important to remember to slow down and give yourself extra time to get to your destination, especially if you are driving outside of our quickly shrinking daylight hours. Pedestrians and cyclists need to remember to increase their visibility by wearing reflective clothing and carrying flashlights or glow sticks when they are using the shoulder or side of a road for travel, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper of the Prince George RCMP.

The Winter Driving Safety Alliance and ICBC also have some reminders for drivers and pedestrians at this time of year:
