Be Careful on the Roads this Winter!

Winter has arrived, and it’s getting messy out there! Here are a few tips to keep you safe while travelling in bad weather.

If you’re going to be driving somewhere, it’s a good idea to plan your route ahead of time and leave plenty of travelling time in case the roads are slippery. CBC Radio One gives updates on traffic news to keep you informed while you’re on the road (99.1 FM in Calgary, 93.9 FM in Edmonton, 88.1 FM in Vancouver and 90.5 FM in Victoria).

When you’re travelling as a pedestrian, it’s important to be visible to drivers, especially this time of year when the sun goes down early. Wearing bright colours and reflective clothing will make it easier for drivers to see you. Be extra cautious when crossing the street during bad weather in case drivers have difficulty stopping.

Be careful and stay safe out there!
