9 rules for safe winter driving

Here are 9 tips to help you be safe while driving your car in winter in Canada:

  • Install winter tires from December 15 to March 15. It’s the Law!
  • Have your car completely inspected.
  • Install winter wipers.
  • Make sure that the tire valve has a cap to prevent snow and ice from entering.
  • Have a winter first aid kit.
  • Check out the road conditions before you leave. If conditions are poor, use public transit or postpone your trip.
  • Keep washer fluid in reserve.
  • Make sure you clear your vehicle of snow before you hit the road. Walking in a travelling igloo could have dangerous consequences and be fined!
  • Slow down if weather conditions are not good and visibility is reduced.

 

Drive safe!
