The Essex County OPP are reminding motorists to drive according to weather and road conditions during this most recent snow fall.
Police say that there is no secret to safe winter driving. If you see snow – go slow.
Make sure you look far ahead when you drive so you can recognize hazards in advance and have plenty of time to respond.
Always adjust you driving to current weather and road conditions and reduce your speed when the roads are slippery or slushy.
Remember bridges and overpasses freeze more quickly and stay frozen longer.
They also suggest to carry a winter survival kit with you when you travel. Extra clothing, winter boots, blankets, and snack foods are recommended. Having a candle and waterproof matches can help heat the interior of your vehicle if it stalls or you become stranded.
