ICBC warns drivers about winter driving conditions over long weekend

In a release Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone says, “Winter weather is forecasted in some regions of B.C. this long weekend so consider re-scheduling a planned road trip and stay off the roads if needed. If you must drive this Family Day long weekend, make sure your vehicle is properly equipped, check drivebc.ca so you know what to expect on your route and adjust your speed for the conditions you encounter.”

Among the things ICBC suggests are considering travel alternatives should road conditions be hazardous, make sure your vehicle is equipped with winter tires, be slow and steady in winter driving and avoid sudden movements in the event you skid, andhave an emergency kit handy if you get stranded or stuck.
