Mainroad reminds you to please  slow down   during fall and winter driving.   ICBC offers the following safe driving tips for fall and winter:

Get prepared. Check the weather before you head out for the day. If you’re planning a trip to an area you’re not familiar with, check the road conditions for your entire route so you can prepare for the weather you may encounter.

  • Slow down. Posted speed limits are for ideal conditions only. It takes more time and distance to come to a complete stop on snowy roads. Slow down and increase your following distance to at least four seconds.
  • Prepare your vehicle. Make sure that your tires are rated for the conditions you’re driving in, the tread isn’t badly worn and they’re inflated at the correct pressure – pressure drops in cold weather and over inflated tires can reduce gripping. Make sure your wipers are in good condition so that you can see more of the road.
  • Leave the car at home. When heavy snow arrives, consider alternatives for getting to work so you get there safely – whether it’s taking transit, carpooling with a friend who’s a confident winter driver, working from home or adjusting your hours of work.   Learn more
