Winter driving tips
Check weather and travel conditions before heading out. Don't take chances if the weather is bad, wait until conditions improve.
Prepare your vehicle before you travel. Clear snow and ice so it doesn't obstruct your view to the front, side or rear of the vehicle and remove excess snow from the roof.
If you must go out, drive according to weather conditions. Give yourself plenty of time to get to where you are going.
Use the basic rule of thumb for spacing your vehicle with a vehicle in front - 1 vehicle length per 10km/h
Grey Bruce OPP are asking drivers to slow down on snow covered roads and drive safe.
