Winter Driving Tips

 
We are fortunate to have gentle winters in our region than other parts of Alberta.  As a result, not everyone remembers to modify their driving in the winter in order to drive safely.
 
There are many Winter Driving Tips that can help you drive safely this winter: 
  • Slow down and leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle in front of you
  • Remember to look ahead to identify and prepare for dangerous situations before you reach them
  • When driving down hills such as Whoop-Up Drive or Bridge Drive, shift down a gear before you descend and let your engine help prevent you from picking up speed so you don't have to apply the brakes suddenly to slow down
  • Please leave plenty of room for our snow plows, graders and sanding trucks.  Don’t pass plows or graders while they are working. If you give us room to work, we can get the job done faster for you!
