Winter driving road-safety awareness

Get tips for safe driving in winter. 

Winter driving

Many animals travel in pairs or groups. If you see 1 animal on the road, assume others are nearby and slow down!

Tips for a safe trip

  • Slow down for wildlife – where there's 1 animal, there are often more. 
  • Get a grip. Get winter-rated tires.
  • Your tail lights are off, unless you turn them on.
  • Speed limits are for ideal conditions. How are they now?
  • If it's green now, it won't be for long. Be ready to stop.
  • Give yourself twice as much time to stop.
  • Snow plows are out there to keep you safe. Give them room to do their job.
  • Remove all ice and snow from your vehicle before you drive.
  • Never pass a snow plow or grader on its right side.
  • Give snow plows lots of space, about 5 car lengths.

Get a grip. Get winter-rated tires.
Tires that are not rated for winter driving harden in freezing temperatures. This significantly reduces your vehicle's traction.
