Winter is a challenging season for motorists with snow and unpredictable weather. As weather conditions change, so do road conditions. Winter puts extra demands on you as a driver, and your vehicle’s performance.
Stay alert, slow down and stay in control, these are the three key elements to safe winter driving. The OPP would like to remind the public to:
– Drive according to current road and weather conditions. The posted speed limit is intended for ideal road conditions – in poor conditions, reduce your speed.
– Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you; it takes much longer to stop on a slippery road. You may not spot a hazard as quickly when the visibility is poor.
– Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle ahead
– Avoid situations where you may have to brake suddenly on a slippery surface.
– Be able to see and be seen. Clean frost and snow off all windows, mirrors, lights and reflectors.
– Equip your car with good wiper blades and keep an ample supply of windshield washer fluid.
– If visibility is poor, use your full headlamps.
– Give yourself extra time to reach your destination, and postpone or cancel your trip if the weather does not improve.
Remember to buckle up, and never drink and drive!
