FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Fire Department is reminding residents to drive according to road conditions after responding to two motor vehicle incidents before 11:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

Inspector Alyn Stobbe says drivers may need to adjust their driving speeds.

“Use your common sense, slow down for the road conditions, just because it says 90 or 100 maybe that might not be the safest condition to be driving at that speed,” Stobbe advised.

Stobbe also recommends that drivers adjust their following distances and keep their winter tires on through spring.

A snowfall warning is in effect in the North and South Peace regions. Environment Canada also recommends that drivers adjust their driving with changing road conditions.

The weather service advises that if visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
