RCMP issue safe winter driving tips following snowfall

first_imgIf you looked outside of your window this morning, you might have noticed that Fort St. John has finally received some snowfall.Following a minor accident this morning where a vehicle slid into a ditch near Mile 120, RCMP is warning drivers to take into account more of the slippery road conditions well on their way.“Now’s the time that people are supposed to have on their winter tires,” said Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.- Advertisement -As of October 1st, drivers are required to have certified winter tires with a tread of at least 3.5 mm on their vehicle if they take designated highways. Failure to do so can result in a fine from $109 to $121.Now that we are getting further into the cold months of the year, Shelkie said drivers should keep these things in mind when they hit the road.Keep your focus on the road and on other vehicles, eliminate all distractions, and make sure you are well rested.Always drive according to weather conditions.Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to avoid having to brake suddenly on a slippery surface.Make sure you know how to handle your vehicle in all weather conditions.Keep a winter survival kit in your vehicle to make your car winter ready. Make sure you have sufficient windshield washer fluid in the reservoir that is rated a minimum of -40 C temperature range. Keep an extra jug in the vehicle.Listen to the radio for road and weather updates and check road conditions before leaving. Plan extra time to get to your destination and consider delaying your trip in bad weather, and notify a friend or family member of your destination and anticipated arrival time.When approaching winter maintenance vehicles from behind, slow down, stay back and be patient – and move over for emergency vehicles.Keep your fuel tank as sufficiently full – at least half a tank – as you can.Clear snow and ice from the roof, hood, trunk and all windows, lights and mirrors. After starting your vehicle, wait for the fog to clear from the interior of the windows so you will have good visibility all around.Remember to check tire air pressure frequently, as it decreases in cold weather, worn or damaged tires can hamper your ability to drive safely.last_img read more
