How can I help?

  • During a snowstorm, avoid parking along emergency routes, arterial thoroughfares and collectors.

  • Exercise extreme care when driving in inclement weather. Driving on snow packed and icy roads requires your full attention. Allow extra room between you and the vehicle ahead of you.

  • Remember to brake slowly.

  • Keep your windshield clean at all times.

  • During times of reduced visibility, watch for bicycles, disabled individuals and pedestrians, especially around schools. If at all possible, do not drive during a storm: it is much safer to stay at home and wait until conditions improve.

  • Never assume that because the temperature is above zero the roads are safe. Road salt does not work miracles and is not effective below -10 degrees Celsius.
