With the fall season brings an added risk to motorist for wildlife related collisions. Some safety tips to consider are:
– Be aware that roads that have trees and vegetation right next to the road could impact on your visibility of wildlife. Scan the road ahead from shoulder to shoulder
– Slow down, a lower road speed increases your reaction time
– If you see one deer, count on that there will be others in the area that could suddenly bolt onto the road
– Many deer collisions occur at dawn or dusk. Drive with your high beams on at night where possible and watch for glowing eyes of animals.
– Never swerve suddenly. This could cause your vehicle to go out of control, and or head into the path of oncoming traffic.
Drive Carefully – watch for wildlife.
Time to Get Ready for Winter Driving.
Every year, the first snow fall comes before many Ontarians are ready for it and according to the OPP; it is wise to keep one step ahead of it by getting ready for winter driving conditions on Ontario roads and highways.
Preparing yourself and your vehicle for the harsh winter weather ahead can go a long way in reducing collisions – something the OPP sees far too many of every winter.
Getting Your Vehicle Ready:
– Install four winter-rated tires before the first snowfall.
– Have an ice scraper or snow brush in your vehicle to keep your windows, signals and lights clear.
– Top up your windshield washer reservoir and keep an extra one handy.
– Keep your fuel tank at least ½ full so you don’t run out of gas should you become stranded and to prevent condensation from forming in your gas tank.
– Keep a fully stocked emergency kit in your vehicle.
– Have your vehicle serviced to avoid preventable breakdowns.
Adjusting your driving habits:
– Drivers must SLOW DOWN! – Speed too fast for road conditions is the #1 cause of winter collisions.
– Drive according to the road and weather conditions.
– Leave extra spaces between vehicles – Stopping distances are at least doubled on snowy roads and even longer in icy conditions.
– Know where you are – If you require help in an emergency it will delay the arrival of emergency responders if you don’t know your location when asked.
– Monitor road and weather conditions – Plan your trip and check local weather conditions before heading out.
– Check the Ministry of Transportation website prior to heading out on
any trip during the winter – Please do not call 9-1-1 or the OPP for road
