Drivers in Ontario got the first taste of winter last week and according to the forecasters, it could be a long, cold season. Last Thursday, Toronto saw 10 centimetres of snow and Toronto police were reporting close to 24 weather related collisions or accidents that evening.
Now there is nothing new about winter weather. It’s all part of living in Canada – we are the Great White North after all. But it never hurts to seek out a refresher on winter driving tips or even get an update on new aspects, developments or rules of the road that might impact how you behave and react when you get behind the wheel this winter.
- What should drivers do in the event that they become stranded on the roadside?
- What do drivers need to do to prepare for driving during the winter months?
- And what are some of the basics that people might need to be reminded of – is it ever okay to pass a plow?
These are just some of the things the experts at the Canadian Automobile Association consider every day.
