Winter driving reminders:

The Kitimat RCMP would like to remind drivers to please take extra time for your commutes as
winter is upon us. Start off by ensuring your tires are winter rated and in good condition. Clear
your windows of ice and snow so you have a clear view of things around you while you are
driving. Also take the time to clear off any loose snow so its not sliding off onto your
windshields or blowing into other vehicles. If you are travelling long distances, have warm
clothes with you, extra water and a first aid kit. Drive a litter slower, prepare for fast changing
driving conditions and most importantly, arrive safe and sound!
